What is our design philosophy? It’s a modern and timeless combination of proportion, space, light, color and more that enlighten your project’s design direction. It is the intersection of comfort, livability and detailing that make your space more than just another place, and definitely not a cookie-cutter repetition. You are a unique person….shouldn’t your home be a unique reflection of you? We think so!

What types of projects can we do? Just ask! Our experience ranges across residential designs for new construction and remodels, office spaces and small commercial work and more. We’ve worked on many residences, a LEED-Gold certified building and high-rise office towers. We’ve even designed a tree house, contemporary and modern furnishings, and a modern dog house to suit our clients!
My project may be too small. Can you help? We would love to partner with you and create innovative designs for the right projects. You’ll never know until you give us a call. Our size and flexibility allow us to adapt and undertake an array of projects. All of our clients and their projects matter. Give us a call!
Architect Bio: Dan Eckelkamp
Eckxstudio was founded by architect Dan Eckelkamp, AIA LEED-AP.
Dan directs his energy and focus toward the development of great designs that embrace modern and contemporary architecture. Place, tradition, budget and common sense all play a part in creating designs that will endure and inspire.
Dan entered the architectural profession following several years managing advanced telecommunications projects for a large international telecom company. His passion for his hobbies of home renovation and furniture building led him to return to graduate school and refocus his career in architecture and design. He holds a Bachelor of Science in Business from The University of Texas at Dallas and a Master of Architecture degree from The University of Texas at Arlington where he graduated at the top of his class.
Dan worked for several Dallas-based firms that specialized in residential and commercial design, and later hospitality interior design. While at the firm of Dallas architect Lionel Morrison for almost 10 years, Dan led multiple teams on many significant projects including downtown Dallas’ One Arts Plaza, a LEED-Gold certified office building in Plano, and for several nationally and internationally published private residences. Dan has also been Project Architect on several hotel renovations such as the Hyatt Grand Champions in Indian Wells, California and for a ground-up hotel design at Baha Mar in the Bahamas. Additionally, Dan was Project Architect for the 2013 transformation of 1801 California Street, one of Denver, Colorado’s tallest skyscrapers.
Dan has been a licensed Architect since 2008, is a LEED Accredited Professional, and is certified by the National Council of Architectural Record Boards. He draws from numerous sustainable techniques and modern building science as he develops his projects and believes simple, efficient solutions often achieve dramatic results that do not fade over time whereas trends come and go. Every project is infused with unique and personal elements so your project truly comes alive.
Dan has been selected by a committee of peer architects as a winner of the AIA Dallas 2015 10-Under-Ten competition, recognizing him from among architects in Texas for his innovation, leadership, and design.
