FORM ARCHITECTS is a regional architectural practice with offices in Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago with over twenty four (24) years of combined experience in design, environmental planning and architectural development for a wide range of projects and building types. Our projects range significantly in budgets, scale, material usage, type and content to include retail, residential, institutional, multi‐unit housing, performance and commercial complexes and spaces.
We are committed to a high standard of architecture within an ecological and sustainable framework. We seek to design modern environments that are responsive to the climate of the region, people and their lifestyles. We are heavily involved in the conceptual exploration and creation of architecture while consistently seeking new experimental and technological applications to improve our product. With the use of construction systems and new materials, we believe that innovation must continue throughout the design and implementation processes whilst at the same time being relentlessly practical.
Contrary to most traditional practices, the firm encourages no separation between the design, production and construction process. We strongly believe that the process of design and innovation continues throughout all phases of design and construction in an effort to create positive impacts and effects on the built environment. Through our commitment to this design philosophy we have achieved interesting and novel results within established budgets while making strong and fulfilling statements for our clients, thereby achieving total stakeholder satisfaction. This has ultimately led to better spaces and living environments and an overall understanding of architecture as an extension of the human experience.
Research is a very important part of design. We work closely with you to identify your needs, the challenges you’re facing, and determine the outcomes you expect. Our aim is to learn more about you, so we can give you exactly what you want. This stage allows us to communicate with our clients to create discovery process that is critical and often overlooked phase in development process. We never use a cookie-cutter approach when we collaborate with our clients. Each design is new and a new process developed from client needs.
This is often the most difficult stage of the design process and at this time we are deep in the trenches with the client’s contractor to ensure that all the specifications of the project is being carried out during the construction. We ensure our works are up to the highest standards to ensure that you our client gets exactly what they desire. We manage all project consultants and contractor to ensure on time delivery of each project within its budget till the project is complete and ready to be occupied.
Once we have identified needs and expected outcomes, our talented team of architects will customize a tailored solution designed to help you achieve your specific objectives. We create physical and virtual models of our design solutions to ensure that our clients can see clearly our design intent and how it satisfies the needs they have expressed.
At the completion of our design process, we now produce all construction information and specification that are required for building approvals and construction. Our experienced team draws upon their knowledge base to specific and design sustainable solutions that are low energy and are sustainable in their making and operation.
"We develop environmentally sensitive design solutions that are responsive to users and their lifestyles, through a sustainable combination of art, science and technology”.
