If your project requires engineering or other design services, the architect can coordinate this team of experts so you don't have to. An architect works with various engineers to select each system, review them against the project goals, and integrate them into a cohesive building design. 

An architect has intimate knowledge of working with the building, planning, zoning and other jurisdiction officials. Codes and laws are often complex documents and are difficult for those outside of the building industry to understand. An informed architect can speed up the approvals process by many months, saving time and money for all concerned.

Building Code

Engineering

The architect can help you find qualified construction contractors based on your requirements. Because an architect prepares and distributes a single, complete set of construction documents to each prospective contractor, all price quotes are based on the same information and expectations. Alternatively we also offer the option to let us build it ourselves which will save you more time and money.

Contractors

The architect visits the construction site to help verify that the project is being built according to plans and specifications. An architect acts as the owners advisor during construction. We attend site meetings and review construction progress to ensure that the project is getting built to appropriate standards per the construction documents. When unforeseen conditions arise or if design changes are made, an architect will help review change orders from the contractor to make sure the scope, cost, and method of construction for the proposed changes are acceptable.

How are you going save money?

Knowing what, how, and where your project is going to be built will encourage savings, while keeping quality.

A well-conceived project can be built more efficiently and economically. Architects plan your project with you. As your ideas evolve, changes can be made on paper much less expensively than later on when construction is underway. Thorough drawings also make it easier for the contractor to accurately price and build your project.

Good design sells. A well-designed house has a higher resale value. A well-designed store draws customers. A well-designed work environment attracts employees and increases productivity. Energy-efficient buildings can save you money on fuel bills down the road. An architect can design a building to maximize heating from the sun and let in natural light, thus reducing your heating, cooling, and electric bills over time.

The kitchen once designed to be the back of house utility space for food storage and preparation is now a centerpiece of the contemporary home. Learning how you live your day to day can help us organize your home around your lifestyle. Not the other way around.

Function

Space

Creativity is about using the following repertoire of tools to analyze and solve problems in innovative and inspiring ways.

Our idea is simple, buildings should be designed around their occupants and their needs and not a design that follows trends or fashion. We believe that the buildings should offer a connection with the site. Buildings that should be inspired by vernacular architecture and that offer a straight forward construction process.

Aesthetic

Space is one of the elements of design, as space is continuously studied for its usage. Designing a space is not only designing a box, when we design a space we are implicity provoking experiences, emotions and mental states. We design spaces to promote effective engagement and sensory response.

Why an

Architect?

Architects design solutions, save you money and make your life easier.

Few people realize how complicated it is to build - that is until they find themselves lost in the maze of design options, building codes, zoning laws, contractors, and so on. No two building projects are exactly alike, so there is no single, clear-cut path to follow.

Architects see the big picture. Going beyond four walls and a roof, architects design comprehensive environments that satisfy functional needs, while not compromising on exciting or dynamic spaces.

THE STORY ABOUT HOW GUTIERREZ+URIBE BEGAN

 

Gutierrez & Uribe, is based in Wellington, Fl. The studio was founded in 1993, and after almost three decades they still believe in the same ideals. Inspired by our love for everything equestrian, we built a home, a studio, and a barn.  Surrounding by the idea of working where we relax and relaxing where we live, G+U was born.

They decided after 10 years experience in a large company to make a change. They moved to Wellington, Florida where the famous Winter Equestrian Festival takes place every year from December to April. It is a town that breathes and grows around the equestrian world. The horses are a primordial part of our life and our family; we live and work in the heart of the countryside. The studio is a reflection of our dream. The importance of living close to nature is reflected in each project, always with respect of the land and environment, knowing that each place built is on sacred land.
