Atelier Akari specializes in full service architecture which includes private residences, retail, and offices. The philosophies of Balance, Movement, and Editing are explored by all Akari projects, during the pre-design service phase.
The Services are organized into steps required to design and construct a project. The fees are based on the services, and the owner may choose all or a portion of the Services if needed.
The owner will be invoiced every two weeks. Plans and specifications for permitting, bidding, or construction will not be released until all previous balances are paid in full. The fees will be determined by the services selected.
Architecture is a balance between the materials extracted from our natural environment and the materials used for new construction.
