The Master Architect Model

Centuries ago, architects were responsible for the entire process of building creation.They involved themselves not only in the design of the building, but also the design of the interior components. In some cases, this included everything from furniture to lighting fixtures and custom flooring design.

The Master Architect model made sense then and it makes sense today, especially with the advent of advanced digital modeling software.Today, Architecttura is able to digitally create virtual buildings in unprecedented detail – so detailed that we are able to precisely estimate material needs, standard labour costs, millwork and much more. Our ability to forecast major cost items allows us to negotiate and manage project costs within much tighter budgets.

By overseeing every aspect of design and construction, we ensure that the finished building faithfully reflects the original design intent, is built in a more streamlined way, and ultimately saves you money.

How managing construction ensures a better build. Read more

As your architects, we understand exactly what you expect from your building. We know why certain design decisions were made. We know what’s important to you. That makes us uniquely qualified to guide the construction process – to make absolutely sure that the final product remains true to your goals and your vision.

It also helps to have a single, intimately informed source of authority for all construction decisions. A one-stop-shop saves time, money and reduces conflicts. It reduces the stress inherent in any building project and gives you peace of mind, knowing that your project is being managed by the people who know it best.

Architecttura’s sister organization, Parattura, specializes in custom fabrication of parametric building components and systems. This close relationship allows our designers to create radically new, paradigm-shifting components that are optimized for efficient implementation.

The Seven Disciplines of
Our Master Architect Model

Master Architect Model

Life Cycle Management Architectural Design Integrated Engineering Construction Management Parametric Design & Fabrication Urban Planning Interior Design

As Master Architects, Architecttura offers expertise in seven key disciplines that, together, span the entire scope and life cycle of your project. It’s all built upon the unprecedented detail of our DeepDesign 4D modelling. Using advanced technology in game-changing ways is how we build intelligence into everything we do.

Building Intelligence

Integrated Engineering

Integrating our design and engineering on a shared platform, allows us to design to much tighter tolerances and to build within tighter timelines. And because we don’t just produce designs but actual shop and fabrication drawings from our digital model, our engineered elements precisely fit the structure and the design intent.

Engineering: Civil/Site


Integrating our civil engineering and design processes creates a virtual link between the building design and the site. It allows us to analyse the effects of site-specific features that create intelligent, sustainable solutions

Benefit: enables energy usage modelling and analysis for more efficient and sustainable buildings.

Engineering: Structural


Integrated structural engineering allows our design team to seamlessly weave together the elements of the superstructure using a
shared design platform.

Benefit: transition from design to fabrication creates efficiencies, ensures clarity of vision. and enhances quality control.

Engineering: Building Services


Tighter integration of your building’s internal electrical and mechanical systems with structural components allows us to dramatically reduce installation conflicts throughout the design process.

Benefit: enhances the construction process and reduces the risk of cost overruns. It maximizes energy efficiency and sustainability.

Engineering: Intelligent Simulation


Intelligent simulation, using our DeepDesign methodology, allows us to precisely model a variety of factors related to sustainability, thermal gain and loss, and energy efficiency across the entire building life cycle.

Benefit: Maximized energy efficiency and a stronger confluence between aesthetic and pragmatic considerations.
