Our Story

We founded FSC Architects in 2010 with the idea that excellent architecture and design begins with the understanding of space as a living entity. We see our projects as opportunities to enrich the lives of those who will use our designs. With an extensive background in hospitality design and resort master planning, we consider ourselves less as traditional architects and more as designers of an experience, whether that experience is a golf clubhouse, a 100-acre beachfront resort, or a mixed-use urban retail development. In every project that we undertake, we seek to create an environment that will uplift the guests, residents, and workers who will interact with our design on a daily basis.

We pride ourselves on our ability to be flexible as well as innovative as we work with our clients to fulfill their vision. Each one of our custom designs draws not only from the natural environment in which it is based, but also the local culture, all while also blending in the distinct artistry of modern architecture.

Our team of architects comes from a variety of international backgrounds, and together we offer more than eight decades of combined architectural experience. We are proud to have completed multiple award-winning hospitality design projects all over the world, each of which is a testament to our commitment as a firm to create Living Places and unforgettable experiences.
