WE CREATE PLACES FOR YOUR LIFE

Beautifully shaping the built environment to fulfill the needs of our clients has always motivated our
passion for excellence in design. Yet, supporting and reinforcing our skill at creating incredible built
environments are the relationships we have with our clients, which motivate our empathy for their goals, both personal and professional. By fully enveloping ourselves in your objectives, our work serves an instrument for your success. Attending to the needs of our clients is always our first priority.

 

Our empathy for our clients’ objectives is fostered by extensively interviewing and actively listening to clients. Our objective is to foresee opportunities and formulate innovative solutions to project issues both known and previously unidentified.  With a collaborative approach focused on a project’s goals, we lead clients across the entire design process, from conceptualization through documentation, into bidding and through contract administration.  Augmenting our boutique-firm service, our expansive network of trusted relationships allows us to rapidly put together teams of professionals bespoke to your project’s needs, with an eye for identifying opportunities in the marketplace in pursuit of your objectives.

CREATIVE WITHIN CONSTRAINTS

We are keenly aware that the best design solution can only be affected when it is attainable within
a client’s stated budget. That is why Derek Rubinoff, Architect has a record of working with clients
to establish a budget at the onset of a concept, and then, working closely with clients’ construction
managers and contractors, delivering design work and documentation on budget and on time. While
our imagination seeks innovation, our experience grounds us in your practical and financial objectives.
Additionally, our artfulness, documentation, and productivity is augmented by top-tier technological
assets, offering the ability to fully integrate design with other members of a project team.

YOU ARE THE WORLD

Motivated by both cost-saving efficiencies for our clients and our fundamental desire to better quality of life for the owners and users of buildings, we are keenly effecting architectural solutions to the environmental challenges of our time.  That’s why Derek Rubinoff has been actively involved in green building organizations and is a LEED-accredited professional.

AS A TEAM, WE ARE HERE FOR EACH OTHER. AS OUR CLIENT, WE ARE HERE FOR YOU.

With our strong background in retail, restaurant, commercial shell, interiors, and residential work, we
offer uncommon specialization with an active adaptability to new project types. We invite you to speak
