fmt intro Next section

fmt develops architectural projects that seek to improve our dwelling experience.

We believe that a building, in addition to protecting us from the elements, should be a backdrop for our lives; allowing us to contemplate nature, sleep comfortably, have long conversations with friends and cultivate memories.

Our search for a clean design makes us explore numerous alternatives to find the most beautiful iteration among the generated options.

“The things we build, or wish to build, reflect our own state of mind; they're blueprints of the way in which we hope to reinvent our world.”

What we do

We provide design solutions, generate and discuss budget, arrange execution details and oversee the whole process.

Domestic and cultural spaces are the focus of our work: family residences, artistic retreats, remodeled houses with history, concept stores, restaurants, galleries and coffee shops.

    Bringing a project to reality always encounters multiple decisions.

    After completion of the design phase, we generate and review a budget with the construction team to start work on the site.

    During execution, the project is constantly monitored to ensure that is understood and respected.

FAQs

  • In the full service we provide information that helps us understand the entire project and plan the steps prior to construction. These documents include:

    • Plans specified in detail
    • Photorealistic perspectives
    • Construction budget
    • Shopping catalogs
  • To carry out an orderly process, we work the project in phases:

    1. Concept
    2. Preliminary draft
    3. Executive project
    4. Contractor negotiations
    5. Construction
    6. Delivery

    Each phase will respond better to the questions of the proposal: How does it look? How does it meet my needs? How much does it cost to build it?

  • In the full service we actively participate in the negotiations, adjusting the project without altering the concept to achieve the financial goal. These reviews consider from a couple of weeks to a couple of months before starting the work.

  • We believe that each project must be a tailored suit that represents the client's interests, as well as their lifestyle and beliefs. That is why each order is carried out as a collaboration between us and you. Every conversation we have is integrated into the project to make sure the original intent is kept clear.
  • This process varies greatly, depending on the type of assignment.
    For a family residence, the entire process takes between 12 and 14 months.
    It is important to mention that the time considered for a project takes into account a meticulous analysis of its conditions, reducing omissions and anticipating situations that could affect it, so shortening this time is somewhat delicate. It is possible, however, to reduce it by taking extraordinary measures if imperative.

  • We work residences. For more than 6 years our office has been in charge of the design, management and coordination of medium and large-scale projects. We have worked on extensions and new buildings; in urban and natural contexts. Always focusing on meeting the emotional and functional needs of the spaces we propose,
    Formal simplicity, contact with nature and the playful quality of the spaces are the basis of our design proposals.

  • Our commitment is to personally attend to each project, responding to your needs. For this reason we focus on not carrying more than 6 projects at the same time.
  • The procedure is very simple.
    It begins with a short interview, preferably on the site to intervene, to review the context on which we will work.
    In this meeting we need:

    • a simple drawing or sketch of the area to be worked on,
    • a list of required spaces or intentions with the project

    With these elements we can prepare a work proposal in an average of 3 days. This proposal is presented in a personal way.

  • The time and cost of a project are determined mainly by the area to be worked and the level of detail requested. In our first interview we take note of your needs and translate them into preliminary areas to understand the scope of the project. This proposal takes approximately three days to generate and is presented personally.
    In case you have questions, you can write to us at hola@fmtestudio.mx and we will gladly schedule an appointment.

  • In the case of hiring the simple service, once the architectural project has been delivered to the client. In the case of contracting the full service from now on, the service ends once the construction delivery certificate has been signed.
