Mission Statement

Architecture is both an art and a service. Its success can be measured on the consistency with which that service is provided. Key to a successful Architectural Practice is clear communication with clients who are both the end user and the investor in the projects. Arcumen Architects seeks to ensure at all times that clients are fully aware of the context in which proposals are being presented and the implications on quality, time and cost that each decision may have on the projects.
