“Socio Responsive Architects”

PHILOSOPHY

At ICON Architects, we believe that the built environment must fulfill the needs of the people, both spiritually and physically. As such, the domain of culture, climate and context are central to our design philosophy. These are, however, the starting points of the larger design process. The ultimate creation of meaningful architecture is a rigorous synthesis of many parts:

Invention, symbolism, form, texture, movement, relationship to the surroundings, sustainability, services and character. The question of utmost importance is the determination of a buildings’ effect on its users and onlookers; can it elevate ones’ sense of well-being and compatibility? A “whole” or completeness in architecture-design is achieved when the design has acknowledged, translated and incorporated all these elements.

 

Equally significant to our practice is the commitment to our clients. This is evident from the level of personal service we assign to all our projects. Our clients also appreciate us for valuing their resources of cost and time.

The design philosophy of ICON is to move forward from the past and explore the endless possibilities of the constantly changing future. The principles of the past may help us to understand ourselves better, but it cannot be the sole engine to define our present or future. We will express our time. The challenge is to thus, rediscover and redefine. There is also a conscious resolve of not repeating oneself, and strive for a progression and development of ones’ design discourse.
