Architectural Design Consultants was established in 1988 by Annabel Delgado, Patrice Marbin-Barrocas and J. Mark Harrington. Having all met in Architecture School, this group has strictly adhered to common philosophical principles while combining their individual pursuits: academic, interiors, set design and yoga. South Florida, as a young community in search of an identity, has enabled the partners to embark on a unique quest that is particular to every project.
Each building has a responsibility to its environment, natural and urban, as well as its occupants. This results in a particular design solution, unique to each project. This concept permeates to its interior, providing a "setting", for the different uses within. The partners hold a common belief that their approach to each architectural project should be a comprehensive design solution. Most of their work exhibits this commitment; encompassing the building envelope, the interior space, the finishes, furnishings, and lighting; all of which are generally custom designed by the partners. Its composition of forms, use of varied materials, and the manipulations of color throughout identify the work of Architectural Design Consultants.
The interiors are approached as urban problems. Furniture becomes the "buildings" that help establish a hierarchy among the different spaces. Some furnishings are built- in, becoming extensions of the walls. Some are free-standing sculptural shapes that generate specific dynamics within a room. Playful colors, rich textures, and unique materials provide another means of expression for each "set", and illustrate its participating "characters". Lighting enhances the drama and depth of the spaces, as if one were to experience them through the lens of a camera.
Architectural Design Consultants has chosen to remain a small boutique firm which builds a team unique to each job, in order to maintain a close contact and control of every aspect of the project, from larger issues, at the Schematic stage, to attention to smaller details and budget concerns.
