James Robert Staicoff
Staicoff Design Company is a full-service interior design and branded environments firm based in Portland, OR, and serving clients throughout the Pacific Northwest and California. Principal James Robert Staicoff's work is noted for its effortless interplay between the art of design and the emotional experience of narrative. His hallmark integration of interior architecture, art, furnishings, collateral, and graphics provides unified experiences in distinctive hotels, spas, restaurants, and residences.

James originally trained as an architect at the University of Kansas, and established his interior design practice with John Cohen & Associates in St. Louis, MO. In 1992, he relocated to Portland, where he continued to work with his Midwest clients and later served as Director of Interiors for Soderstrom Architects. In 2000, James formed his own firm, and in 2006, Denise Corso as a partner in the award-winning CorsoStaicoff. Staicoff Design Company is his newest venture.

James's recent award-winning projects include the Hotel Modera in Portland, OR (Boutique magazine's 2008 Lobby of the Year, 2008 AIA/IIDA People's Choice and Merit Awards for Hospitality), Hotel Murano in Tacoma, WA (finalist in Hospitality magazine's 2008 Hotel of the Year, 2008 AIA/IIDA Honor Award and Best in Show for Hospitality), and two penthouses at the Elizabeth Lofts in Portland, OR (2007 AIA/IIDA Residential Citation Award, 2007 NW Design Awards Kitchen Design). He recently completed a 1,200 square foot penthouse condominium at The Casey in Portland's Pearl District, and worked with his mentor John Cohen on the Cohen's 7,000 square foot modernist home on the Pacific Ocean in Santa Barbara, CA.

Other notable projects in James' portfolio include Barolo Ristorante in Seattle, WA (2007 AIA/IIDA Hospitality Honors Award), the 60,000 square foot Zipatoni Co. advertising agency in St. Louis, MO (Critique magazine's 2000 Environment of the Year), renovation of the lobby at the Mt. Hood Inn in Government Camp, OR, and renovation of the public spaces at the Courtyard by Marriott Portland Airport.

He lives in Portland with his wife and their silly dog.
