2fORM Architecture is founded on the principles of collaboration, service, sustainability, and innovative design. Principal Architect Richard Shugar AIA, LEED AP envisioned a firm that would embody the notion that the creative formative process of architecture can capture the relationship between people and their environment.
one people + one environment = 2fORM Architecture
With Richard’s leadership, 2fORM follows this commitment to this principle, while building on the strengths and talents of the 2fORM design team. Each member contributes their unique perspectives and diverse life experiences to the creative process.2fORM recognizes that architecture captures the relationship formed when people interface with their environment. We strive 2fORM places for people to connect with their community and with the built and natural environments. We work without preconceived ideas about the solution, and instead treat every project as an opportunity to learn and explore.
The primary factor which motivates 2fORM Architecture is the desire to create spaces which support each client’s unique needs. Our primary benchmark for success is the delighted response of our clients to the spaces we have created for them—not the acclaim of our design peers. Over the years, we have found that the best client relationships are formed on a firm foundation of understanding about how the practice of architecture works, in general, as well as how we manage our practice. Realistic expectations about what should occur during each step in the process enhance collaboration, and produce better results.
