One of a kind.

Flour Design Studio – the boundary breaking workshops of architect, designer and cottage-baker Christopher Smith.


I believe in thoughtful design that centers people, builds community, and sustains our world.

Design is such an integral part of our lives. For me, good design helps people. Good design brings us together in meaningful ways. Good design inspires.

Here’s some of what folks have to say about working with me.

I’ve had the benefit of working with Chris over a few years. His ability to offer evenhanded critiques and assessments from an outside perspective alone has been enlightening. With his insights and pragmatic approach, it’s been more like working alongside a thought partner with a genuine interest in actualizing the vision.

Over the years, Chris has coached me to be a thoughtful and deeper strategic thinker with a lens toward inclusive community transformation. He has a masterful way of taking one out of their comfort zone and elevate their capacity to think big. He is authentic, visionary and deliberate in helping people grow.
