Fontan Architecture PLLC is a New York City based architecture firm owned by Registered Architect Jorge Fontan. Our mission is to create spaces that matter to people, that people can care about and be proud of.
GOALS AS AN ARCHITECT
I want my projects to be unique as all of my clients, sites, and occupants are unique. I work on renovation and new construction projects always focusing on dealing with each project with individual solutions. I do not bias myself with preconceptions, I look at each project individually and think what can I do to make this better. Creating architecture is a complex processes I celebrate its complexities and its constraints to inform the design process.
Building is the means and methods of construction. Design is the thought, planning, and process that facilitates a construction project.
A LITTLE BIT ABOUT JORGE
I started working in construction in NY when I was 17, and realized I wanted to be an architect. I am very grateful to have had the chance to actually build with my own hands for several years before becoming an architect. This is an experience most modern day architects do not have but historically was commonplace. I believe architecture and construction have become polarized and a return of the architect as a "Master Builder" is the future of our profession.
WHAT CAN WE DO FOR YOU
Whatever you may be planning we are always excited about discussing new projects and advising you on the process. Whether you are speculating on building or ready to start work immediately we will be happy to provide you with advice, consultation, and professional services.
This firm is dedicated to providing its clients with professional services that fulfill their needs in a manner that is environmentally, functionally, and economically responsible. We strive to create architecture that can inspire, enhance the well being of its inhabitants, and promote balance with its environment. We believe architects are charged with the responsibility of creating spaces that compliment, and thoroughly fulfill their purpose while upholding a dedication to environmental, social, financial, and community concerns. At Fontan Architecture we not only study the way building are built, but also how space is used and perceived, all aspects of the user experience are of equal importance to the technological systems of construction. We consider ourselves lucky to be a part of the process of building our environments though architecture.
