Residential Design | Commercial Interiors
Partners Melissa Breen & Jeff Moniz created 2Hands Studio together in 2013. Beginning as a moonlighting endeavor from the world of corporate design, each of them found fulfillment in helping families and small business owners to realize the potential of their projects; and with the creation of their own family, they decided to make 2Hands Studio a full-service creative consultancy.

Melissa's diverse background in hospitality design and commercial interiors coupled with in her education in textile design has provided a rich tapestry of experience with selecting and installing furniture, fixtures and equipment. She has worked on restaurant and hotel design both domestically and abroad.

Jeff's experiences have come full circle beginning with residential design and expanding his horizons to working internationally with an urban design firm. Returning stateside to work with architectural firms, many of his large scale projects have been community based, creating affordable housing opportunities. This work combined with historic preservation and commercial development projects has given Jeff a multilevel approach to creating realistic design solutions.
With our own two hands and extensive experience in both architecture and hospitality design we have developed a well rounded approach allowing us to create design solutions for both commercial and residential projects.
