ARCHITECTURAL SERVICES

Luxe Architects is a multi-discipline design and build firm, specializing primarily on bringing responsible luxury to today’s work and live environments.  Luxe provides a full range of architectural services for projects that range in complexity and scale. These include new construction, additions, renovations, feasibility studies, and master planning. With every project, our architecture is guided by a research intensive process that results in spaces that embody the routines, rituals, and functional requirements of a wide variety of user groups, while offering comfort and inspiration.

We have a strong focus on social and environmental integration: the impacts of buildings on people. This means our work is based on evidence and needs, not assumption. A hands-on approach characterizes our practice and allows us to respond to large and small projects alike. A consistently high quality of service, design and technical rigor is achieved through creating a project-specific design and delivery process that can be made up of:

  •  Pre-design briefing, workshops, user group analysis
  •  High level concept design basis
  • Discovery consulations and reviews
  • External and internal stakeholder communications
  • Master-planning and feasibility studies
  • Detailed design and documentation
  • Project management and final delivery
  • Business Case development and economic modeling
  • Post occupancy review and testing

We pride ourselves on being able to adapt to a project. We do not hold to a specific style, instead we connect with our clients to craft a design to suit each commission.

A process of designing, prototyping, testing, then revising, allows us to create innovative architecture which our clients can tell stories and thrive within.

We believe that how we design our interior spaces can have a profound impact on our happiness, health and well-being. Our design solutions integrate programming, space planning, leading-edge technologies, sustainability, energy efficiency, lighting, ergonomics, acoustics, brand integration, color, material and furniture as tools that positively impact and create healthy environments and enhance performance.  The design of bright, spatially inspiring and collaborative spaces that help attract and retain loyal talent has become a hallmark of our brand and service.

Bringing new life and purpose to old buildings is a challenging and equally rewarding task. Luxe has transformed a derelict industrial space into a lively, multi-purpose college common area, uncovered wood-beam ceilings and re-purposed the natural beauty in a variety of municipal office and administrative spaces and restored historical and heritage 6-floors of space for an internationally-renowned educational institute. By reinterpreting buildings for contemporary purposes, we keep alive a vital link with the past and blend new and old in the fabric of urban life.

The purpose of master planning is to utilize each building component as an incremental addition to a larger whole. Luxe has completed a large number of master planning, feasibility and costing studies that help our clients and their stakeholders to plan for change. Throughout this process we collaborate with a diverse range of specialists and consultants, experts in their respective fields and who we have long-standing relationships with. Our experience ensures that our solutions are economically viable while being socially and environmentally responsive.

We cannot overemphasize the importance of having a Project Manager for any construction or renovation project that transfer directly from the design team onto the construction team. They are the ones who turn the design concept into reality.

By managing the budget, schedule and overall logistics, as well as ensuring that all parties are coordinated throughout the construction process, a good project manager can save clients thousands of dollars in costly construction mistakes or delays.  Fortunately for you, our project managers have been trained in both architecture and construction to make the transition as smooth as possible with a holistic overview of the project.  Just a few of the services your project manager will fill are:

  • Establishing the budget
  • Establishing the schedule
  • Gaining building approval, with submission of relevant paperwork and drawings
  • Bidding out jobs to contractors
  • Coordination of subcontractors
  • Supervision of onsite work
  • Ongoing management of job budget and job schedule
  • Management of change orders
  • Coordination of all deliveries
  • Quality control of finished work
  • Interfacing with clients, design team, building management, Building Departments, contractors, neighbors and all other relevant parties throughout the project to insure a successful outcome, with amicable relationships maintained.
