Now in our second decade, Magellan Architects was founded upon a singular idea: projects are about our clients, and not about Magellan. We are built around service: the power of architects to efficiently further client business and mission. Our work is commercial, institutional, and public.
Magellan clients and projects thrive. Our product is more than successful and attractive projects: we pride ourselves in mastering specific and evolving customer needs, and being your advocate.
We tackle tough realities from the start: cost, schedule, and risk are at the forefront for each project. By approaching these issues head on, we identify not only challenges but imaginative solutions-scheduling, permitting, construction approach-early, when they are most effective. Key here is proactive relationships with permit and entitlement agencies.
The design process must be collaborative to succeed, so Magellan architecture teams are available at every step. We listen, and keep listening, to customize our approach, tools and communication style for both the normal project progression and changes along the way. This translates to clear process and expectations among the entire project team.
First we learn about your needs: program, culture, technology, sustainability, people, and more. Then, we explore, consider, design, and sometimes challenge. Creativity and beauty are sought; efficiency and workability are mandatory.
