PHILOSOPHY

 

Alec Petros studio creates thoughtful design in the expression of function and form.

Our philosophy carries beyond the design process and stretches into the lifespan of the site. We specialize in timeless design that focuses on clean, simple and purposeful techniques that forge a union between function and form. Our designs encourage a relationship between the built and natural surroundings by investigating opportunities to bring nature closer. Whether working with an ecologically sensitive site or sustainably sourced materials, we believe in continuing innovative building practices in order to turn environmental challenges into design features.

Our work begins with a collaboration to understand how to best achieve the wishes of our clients with the possibilities of the site. We strive to study and research each aspect of the project in order to best to achieve the goals presented. Through careful material selection and coordination, we formulate design strategies that are mindful of both our clients’ desires and financial constraints. With a deep-rooted understanding of the building process, we thrive on collaborating with engineers, contractors, landscape designers and interior designers to ignite the expression of beautiful design.

 

“Form follows function – that has been misunderstood. Form and Function should be one, joined in a spiritual union.”

-Frank Lloyd Wright
