ARTEFACT studio Inc. is an architectural design firm comprised of engineering and architecture experts, headquartered in Southwest Florida.
We provide comprehensive architectural design services, including feasibility studies, planning and interior design with a focus on corporate, educational, retail, residential, hospitality, transportation and master planning.
Ask our clients what made them choose us and you’re likely to get many different answers. There’s one thing they all agree on: We deliver outstanding results in record time and on budget.
At ARTEFACT studio, our balanced design approach and collaborative process allow us to design projects that improve the way people live, work, and learn.
Projects get their start based upon scope, budget, and timeframe. New ideas, functionality, and a superior level of client service bring every project to life.
We do not impose pre-conceived design solutions or stylistic tendencies. Instead we listen and understand the vision and needs of each client.
We take on challenges—such as site conditions, schedules, and budgets—as opportunities that can spark the most innovative and unique solutions.
Every project is guided from schematic design through the successful completion of construction.
The results are distinctive, practical designs that realize the project intention at the highest standards.
