The Nine Studio is a Full-Service Architecture and Interior Design Studio, FOUNDED BY JERELLE ANDERSON, and based in Washington, D.C. 

Primarily specializing in residential and small commercial design, we believe in the ability of design to effectively transform the way that we experience and interact with space. We pride ourselves in providing a design process that is light and fun and delivering a project that is comprehensive, complete, and receptive of our clients’ wishes.



Design was embedded early on in Jerelle as she often found herself building with her older brother’s Lincoln Logs and reconfiguring her Barbies’ furniture sets. So it was no surprise that after establishing a foundation of working for prestigious, multi-disciplinary design firms throughout the DC area for over 10 years, that her passion would develop into The Nine Studio. With her multi-disciplinary background, Jerelle looks at spaces holistically and creates cohesive design that balances dramatic, bold moves with modern, clean lines.

Jerelle is recognized as one of the first 400 black women licensed to practice architecture in the nation’s history. She is an alumna Spelman College, Tulane University, and The University of Pennsylvania. She lives with her husband and two children in the suburbs of D.C.
