ENDRESTUDIO // architects | engineers
Endrestudio provides design driven by performance. We provide the insight, the tools, and the process to bring about the change that you seek. We are architects, engineers, researchers, teachers, and community leaders at the forefront of our field, working together with other professionals to bring you the integrated expertise necessary to provide complete design solutions.
Endrestudio offers a full range of architectural services and a track record of award-winning experience. Stretching beyond the boundaries of one profession’s knowledge to create spaces that inspire. Our architecture portfolio reflects the creative possibilities that arise when architecture and engineering are spoken together. The forms suggest natural forces, celebrate light, and invite second glances.
We listen to client’s dreams and design processes that make them reality. We design for programming—to understand the users, functions, and circulations. We design for nature—to understand the conditions of the site and how sites will be impacted by the project. We design for context—to understand that all projects, whether in an urban area or next to a wetland, can enhance their surroundings. We design for light—to understand the changing of light in a space at different times of the day and year. We design for performance—to understand through careful analysis how materials and forms suggest a design that respects limitations of budget and technology.
With LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Accredited Professionals on staff and LEED certified buildings in our portfolio, Endrestudio is committed to providing leadership in sustainable design practices. We will help to guide clients through the LEED certification process. Our studio began incorporating sustainable design from the outset and we continue to practice green design strategies in our public projects and private residential work. We strive to bring sustainable solutions to all of our projects, to meet our client’s aspirations and the needs of the community as a whole.
By streamlining structural systems, Endrestudio seeks designs that minimize materials consumption but allow for maximum performance. We look for the most appropriate and beautiful way to support a structure and express that structure’s meaning. We consider a structure’s use, it’s intended lifespan, it’s material and geometric properties, it’s budget, it relationship to light and space, its cultural and historical context, it’s detailing, and it’s overall significance in the project as a whole. Constantly being improved, our state of the art tools include 3-D finite element analysis, dynamic vibration studies, performance based seismic and wind studies, code level force analysis, integrated cost vs performance analysis, and real time behavior analysis.
Endrestudio offers a full range of creative and cost effective structural design work. Our principals and associates collaborate with other architects, contractors, developers, and municipal agencies throughout California, nationally and internationally on a wide variety of projects. Our focus is on high quality engineering and innovating solutions. We welcome challenging projects that push the envelope of design and engineering.
Not all projects come to us ready for the design phase. Public and private groups face many difficulties like limited resources, uncertain economic times, and unknown environmental impact when planning for projects. We work with a number of different agencies, municipalities, and design firms looking to focus their resources and explore which strategies best suit their needs.
We provide feasibility studies to determine a project’s impact and viability. Issues considered are a function of project context but can include such areas as sustainable site development, habitat impact, community support, historical implications, and initial development costs versus long-range operating costs. Our feasibility studies give clients the tools they need to focus their resources and pursue the best way to move forward. Whether it is a feasibility study to explore crossing options for a new bridge, or a financial projection of an architectural project. Endrestudio provides the research and planning essential to achieving a successful building project.
Endrestudio takes pride in a well-crafted building and the steps needed to create it. To achieve this we begin our collaboration in the design phases, working with fellow professionals and contractors to better streamline the eventual construction phase of a project. Our team identifies weaknesses, works closely with owners, contractors and fabricators, and creates innovative solutions to solve potential problems before, and if need be, during the construction phase. We provide shop drawing review, value engineering services, construction observation, special inspection services, and ongoing construction administration services throughout the construction process. Endrestudio’s construction support services guide clients through the competing demands of performance, safety and cost constraints. We provide the technical tools and experience to help make the ideas a constructed reality.
