evolution since 1987
for over 30 years garciastromberg has created architecture and interior design solutions for hospitality, residential, and mixed-use buildings. from countless cities throughout florida to expanding urban areas of central america, we have immersed ourselves in the cultural diversities of the local vernacular. we have always been design driven and continue to take on each project with an empathetic understanding of the responsibilities for economic, political, and social criteria present in every venture.
providing solutions for multiple project typologies
our collaborative approach explores and dissects spatial experiences involving participation from clients and all consultants. together we create spaces that inspire the development process while promoting positive impacts on local communities.
architecture is materialized through multiple project typologies. for us, art and music play an integral role in the design and development process, along with 3d models, sketches, renderings and animations. the continuous layering of these different mediums each influence and enhance the other in a way that allows for each design to embody a unique site specific personality.
approached as a seamless integration of the exterior environment, our interior team carefully executes each project alongside the architectural team to ensure the spatial flow and human experience is completely synonymous with the architectural fabric. We always are researching and integrating the latest in design technologies and fabrication methodologies, and pursuing timeless design for each experience.
pursuing and exposing the process
each project is a journey where we dissect human experience and our environment. we understand the complexities and challenges present in the creation of buildings and embrace the necessity of teamwork and communication as the foundation for each vision. from the initial sketch, stroke of a paint brush, or guitar riff, we work as one collective unit locked in on furthering construction and architecture and its role in our evolving society.
we are architects, designers, entrepreneurs, and artists driven by curiosity, working together to solve the complexities present in the creation of buildings and spaces. our success is a result of the harmonious intertwining of unique skills and experience composed within our team.
