Anmahian Winton Architects practices architecture as a project-by-project exploration of conceptual thought and building techniques. We see design as a process of discovery where ideas find their expression in the form of space, the nature of material, and the quality of light. Our design philosophy is guided by the belief that innovation occurs when architectural conventions are tested against the deeper aspirations of a project, transforming a building’s program into the most compelling visual and functional work of architecture.
As architects we are responsible for managing the design process. We do so through close collaboration and inclusive dialogue with our clients and their community of users. This collaboration is the foundation of the research and analysis that informs our feasibility studies, programming analysis, and design work. As leader of the design team, we work closely with our consultants throughout the design process, absorbing and integrating their expertise and experience into our work.
