We invest time in understanding our clients, leveraging their project goals and personal aspirations to guide our design work. We do not impose our own agenda or aspirations onto your project. The outcome is a project that perfectly aligns with our clients and their families.
We alleviate the stress and complexity of navigating the permitting process.
We oversee all phases of the design, quoting, and construction process on behalf of our clients.
We are passionate about what we do, knowledgeable in our field, and dedicated to fulfilling our clients' ambitions.
Our typical way of working is through a comprehensive architectural package contract. This includes schematic design, technical design (including all engineering work) and permitting, overseeing the bidding process, and providing technical guidance during construction.
However, we are open to customizing our services to meet specific requirements, as long as all involved parties have a clear understanding of their roles and deliverables from the start
All project inquiries are evaluated on an individual basis. We do not impose any size or budget restrictions on our project enquiries. Instead, we prefer to gather information about the project, the clients, and their objectives, which helps us make an informed decision to proceed based on various factors.
Our fees will vary for each project based on its unique brief, size, and complexity. For a full service, including concept development through to completion, the typical fee range is 6-10% of the built cost.
We are proud to offer our exceptional services throughout the beautiful country of Costa Rica. Our projects are primarily located along the stunning Pacific coast, including popular destinations such as Nosara, Tamarindo, Santa Teresa, Uvita, and Ojochal. While our dedicated team is primarily based in San Jose for convenient access to various providers and to reach all destinations, we can also be met on short notice in Nosara or Uvita. Just give us a call or shoot us a message.
This will largely depend on the project and the client. For a typical custom home of around 500m2, we would anticipate spending 1-2 months in the schematic phase and 2-3 months in the technical design and tendering phase, while the construction process generally takes around 8-12 months.
We put together a guide for aspiring homeowners & private investors in Costa Rica. In the guide you will find everything we wished we had known before developing our first property. We cover things you should know about purchasing a property, legal requirements, architecture & engineering and tips and tricks that will help you to make better decisions during your first steps of your project.
