WHO WE ARE
WEare a multi-disciplinary group of young professionals who believe that design is about buildings and structures that stimulate their occupants and leave a lasting impression!
At ARCHFORUM we believe that architecture should offer a rich experience to both the user and visitor. A successful project engages the user, heightens their sense of awareness, and brings a sense of vitality to their place. We strive to make buildings and structures that stimulate their occupants and leave lasting impressions. Our attitude not only stresses the search for fundamental principles, but also attempts to reveal extraordinary beauty within ordinary ideas and materials.
The quality of a project is not necessarily related to how much it costs, but rather how wisely the resources of time and money are spent. We believe in simplicity, which results in flexibility in use and economy in cost. Cost management and life cycle building cost is of great importance. Our work is more about an attitude of mind, defining goals and honouring commitments. In that sense the most important thing is to maintain a philosophy of quality and optimism at all scale levels. Our experience and understanding of cost constraints is substantiated by the fact that over 90% of the projects that we have designed and completed construction documents for were successfully realised.
Understanding functional and behavioural patterns is intrinsic to our working method. Research of materials and technologies leads us to new and innovation solutions while respecting tried and tested construction methods. This is true regardless of the scale - big or small, whether for public or private use, for rich or for poor. Working closely with clients, users, industry and a network of consultants is an approach that has led us to often reinvent established building types.
WEapproach each project as the continuation of an ongoing inquiry, exploring creative and unique solutions to the most difficult budgets and programs. We give careful consideration to the appropriateness of design choices in terms of context, program and construction. We are known as architects who link exceptional design with time and budget concerns and a larger commitment to community and quality.
