Javier Gámez Architect
More about me.
We make a difference.
We are a small studio, and that’s why we offer a very personalized, close, and trustworthy approach. We always answer our clients’ calls.
For us, seeing a completed house is a great satisfaction because we feel like we have contributed to making that family’s dream come true.
That’s why we attach great importance to understanding the client’s real needs and accompany them through the challenging and often tedious process of obtaining the building permit.
We are committed to our profession, and we strive to design and construct medium-sized homes, always aiming to create a house that meets the client’s needs while maintaining agility and budget control.
We believe that a well-thought-out project always saves money, time, and trouble.
Good architecture doesn’t have to be expensive. It’s about thinking twice before drawing, seeking opportunities to improve the design once it’s been drafted, and if that means dedicating extra hours, we gladly do so in pursuit of a successful final outcome.
When we start designing a project for a client with a limited (and often scarce) budget, we undertake an important task of “restraint” in managing their expectations.
Indeed, it is common that when sketching the initial designs, clients, driven by the excitement of their future home project, may become enthusiastic and request features that, when added together, can exceed their budget (e.g., a larger swimming pool, a bigger basement, a larger kitchen, etc.).
In such cases, we make an effort to caution them that “anything is possible on paper,” but when it comes to construction, we would surpass their available budget.
This task of bringing the client “back to reality” is crucial to staying within the budget, and in the end, they appreciate it.
