Our mission is to help our clients achieve their project goals and promote good stewardship of our environment through creative design and imaginative solutions. Magellan Architects brings 13 years of experience from a variety of project types. Whether we are providing onsite representation during construction or developing the initial design of the project we recognize that the product must work for this specific client, Magellan prides itself on thinking like an owner, and prioritizes our clients’ needs.
Below is a list of services we provide:
- Interior Design
- Feasibility & Development Analysis
- Project Management
Magellan is a full service architectural firm that prides itself on providing the optimal services based on the specific scope of each individual project. Those services might include As-Builts, Pre-Design, Programming, Schematic Design, Design Development, Construction Documents, Consultant Coordination, Permit Expediting and Construction Administration.
Because each project is unique, we take the time to sit down and listen closely to our clients to identify the most appropriate services given the particular needs of the client.
We focus on providing appropriate interior design solutions that are both aesthetically pleasing and match the functional and budgetary goals for our clients. Our interior design services include space planning, finish selection, lighting design, casework design, and furniture layout and specifications. We are well versed in different work environments ranging from focus to collaborative areas. We work with the client’s needs to understand what environments will create the culture and function they desire for their space.
Magellan has carved its planning niche in the development of small to medium size mixed use and retail projects. We place particular emphasis on visibility and access to the sites in order to maximize exposure and rents for our development partners. We coordinate with the jurisdictions early and often to make sure all development requirements are known and being addressed in a proactive manner.
Magellan believes that the success of a project is often set in the pre-design or due diligence phase of work. As such, we devote significant attention to detail for this effort as it can be the difference between identifying a significant opportunity or avoiding a poorly performing asset.
Magellan works in partnership with our clients during this phase to incorporate their thresholds for budget, scope, schedule, and return on investment into the analysis. As a team, we reach a conclusion about whether a project is deemed feasible at the current time, noted as requiring additional information, or requiring more favorable market conditions before proceeding.
We work closely with the Client to define the functions, relationship and square footage of physical spaces to be included within a project, whether the goal is to enhance functionality, accommodate new needs, increase business, or to redefine aesthetics. We bring our own creative ideas to the process and technical requirements for ancillary spaces that might be needed to support the primary functions.
Programming can range from a one on one discussion with the client to numerous large focus groups with various stakeholders. Magellan is well versed at both scales and really enjoys understanding the nuances of each space so that the final design truly meets the client’s expectations.
Feasibility & Development Analysis
We work with clients to understand the local marketplace and develop potential solutions that will optimize their investment goals. We will analyze proformas, land use and building codes, site constraints, market and construction trends with an emphasis on enhancing the property value and revitalize businesses. Whether its a vacant lot or an existing development, Magellan staff are uniquely equipped help our clients get the most of their real estate investments.
Our project management goals and approach mirror that of our projects. We strongly emphasize planning, regular communication, and periodic reassessment to make sure we have selected the appropriate project course for the desired outcome and that we continue to remain on track toward that outcome. Our focus on collaboration and team approach routinely lead to a positive outcome for our clients. This management style has been the cornerstone of Magellan’s success since its inception.
