Architecture & Design Services

ARCHITECTURE

We work from the bottom up: creating strong bonds with our clients and solid foundations for all our projects. We help you build your visions with a team of architects, designers, builders, expediters, engineers and artists whom we have cultivated relationships with for over 15 years. Our approach to Architecture and Design focuses on a close collaboration with the client supported by clear lines of communication from the first sketch to the completed project.

Design Matters. A tight budget might be overcome by using simple materials innovatively. A short time frame might be overcome by modular design that can be prefabricated. A small footprint might be overcome through the use of modular systems that allow a single space to serve multiple functions. Good design Informs a buildings development, shapes the result and inspires those who use it.

We Take an integrated approach to design, tapping our expertise in all of our service areas; architecture, interiors, sustainability, planning, project management and site design to produce cohesive and attractive solutions.

Our Designs Are Also Practical and “Build-able”. We draw upon the strong engineering and construction backgrounds of our principal and senior staff to produce well-coordinated and highly detailed construction documents.

Sguera Architecure's total quality management program insures that a commitment to excellence is a priority for the entire firm.

Our Goal is to Help You Achieve Your Goals. Our Team will work with you to understand and implement your project’s program within the required budget and within the specified time frame.

INTERIOR DESIGN

We believe that interior design is an important tool to ensure comfort and sustainability of living spaces. We give great attention to the details and we carefully choose finishes and materials. Our design comes alive and encapsulates the needs of every client. Thanks to this we are able to provide turnkey solutions for the interior design and fit out of offices, hotels, clubs & bars, residential buildings and villas, restaurants, shops & boutiques. With our wide expertise we can take care of a project from its preliminary phase throughout the detailed design until the project is complete.

LANDSCAPING

We are aware that landscape is the perfect symbiosis between humanity and nature. The balance between these two presences guarantees beauty and personality to every context. The respect to the surroundings is not only passive admiration but becomes participation and proposal of energy-saving ideas and ever innovative technologies that improve the environmental value of the architecture.

PERMIT FILING

From small renovation jobs to full-scale property development, there are many regulations you need to follow for any construction project in New York City. All of these projects require an architect and permit expediter that can properly manage regulations, zoning rules and building codes efficiently. We have in-house class 2 filing representatives (or expediters) that can handle all of your Department of Buildings needs and expertly navigating the maze of NYC government agencies from the beginning of your project to the end, ensuring its timely and hassle-free completion.
