SOE Studio is situated at the pivotal intersection of technology, architecture, history, and culture. We recognize the importance of this unique position and make it our mission to further democratize cultural heritage. Cultural heritage is a fundamental human right, and our success must be measured beyond profit. Thus, we aim to serve the communities in which we work by increasing access to and inclusion in cultural heritage projects. To do so, we develop not only new, innovative preservation methodologies but also educational programming, professional collaboration, exhibitions, and publications related to historic preservation. 



SOE Legacy

SOE’s (Special Operations Executives) name is influenced from both the Monuments Men of the second world war and the work of the British Special Operation Executives; the first of which worked to secure culturally significant objects, and the second, utilized advanced technology as a means to achieve their missions during conflict. To date, SOE has completed preservation projects in America, Spain, Italy, and Jordan.
