Design

Good design enriches and transforms lives. We employ a practical and imaginative approach to the need for light, space and air in elegant structures. The resultant buildings feel comfortable and healthy, uplifting and inspirational, while remaining rooted in the real world around us.

Achieving a balance between financial, practical, and aesthetic requirements demands sound judgement built upon experience. We understand that cost and time are key to our client's success. We also appreciate that clients are looking for intelligent design: We approach every project with a fresh eye, paying attention to detail, addressing environmental and economic concerns, and encouraging good teamwork.

We aim to simplify and ease the design and construction process for our clients. This is achieved with regular discussion, explanation and review - with each project tailored specifically to client requirements. We look beyond the immediate, searching for opportunities that can transform a project and delight for our clients.

Beauty, Performance, Order and Intelligence.

These are the corner stones of our architectural practice, they frame our design solutions evolved from questions, constraints, ideas, and answers.

At its most basic, building is a way of organizing space and satisfying practical needs. At its most exalted, architecture is a source of wonder and inspiration, confidence and confort. We strive to synthesize these two goals, to create buildings that perform as well as they delight, buildings that uplift the spirit and enhance our environment.

Our design process begins with a careful, in-depth study of each project's requirements and constraints, its use and users, and its ambitions. We then analyze, evaluate, and interpret these factors. Fully briefed and properly informed, Patrice Belle is committed to providing high quality architecture that addresses in a pragmatic way the issues of construction, technology, and sustainability.
