is a full-service architecture and design firm dedicated to realizing the visions of our clients through a highly-collaborative and creative design process. Our firms founder, Architect Victor Caban-Diaz, is a staunch believer in the Integrated Design Process, which involves including all contributors to the "life-cycle of a building" in the early design and decision-making process to develop solutions that provide added benefit to the end product. Through this process, the team can avoid pit-falls that typically hinder projects during construction, and can deliver a cost efficient, serviceable, and aesthetically pleasing building.
The design philosophy of the firm is based on the time-tested architectural principle of "form follows function" delivered through a contemporary style that is both utilitarian and beautiful. We believe that the best buildings adapt to and acknowledge the immediate context of their surroundings, while still standing out with their own personality. The end product should be a building that is functional for its tenants and pleasing for its neighbors.
