CULTURE

"We are a diverse collaborative that cares deeply about creating Architecture and beautifully unique spaces. This is our craft and what we love doing."

We seek visionary clients with challenging projects that require highly inspired design solutions. Our teaming and programming approach efficiently transforms client visions into effective and enjoyable environments. We engage and encourage our clients to actively participate in the co-creation of their projects. Our aim is to inspire the enduring sense of active contribution and a lasting pride of ownership among all stakeholders.

Our collaboration reaches beyond the traditional practice of Architecture. Our design process takes a holistic approach with a specific focus on the building's life-cycle costs and marketability. To be successful, any project must take into consideration the following key components: design aesthetic, constructability, budget, schedule, marketability and life-cycle costs. Our areas of expertise were designed around these key factors in mind. Whether any or all are engaged as a service to any given project, all influence the decision making process to create a successful project.

VISION

5Gstudio_collaborative, llc was founded May, 2005 to expand the parameters of design beyond traditional architectural practice. We are a dynamic, aggressive, vibrant and award winning architectural practice that has rapidly gained world-wide recognition and respect among local and international design peers. We are a firm that exhibits consistent innovation and freshness in our design approach. Further, we approach every development with the mindset of an owner and the know how of a builder. With this approach, we consistently provide our clients with a quality, more marketable product that is delivered on time and on budget. 5G is an international design practice with projects and pursuits in over 10 different countries throughout the world. Our talented group of professionals continues to be successful in winning large, high-profile commissions against some of the most notable firms in every region of the globe. With offices in Atlanta, Miami and Jakarta, Indonesia we are able to effectively reach a larger global network of Clients and Business Partners. As a young practice, 5G studio has seen much success. Our growth as a company has been recognized by the local Dallas business community and we were named among Dallas' Top 100 Fastest Growing Companies.

5G has stood strong through this recent downturn and remained relatively stable when compared to similar design companies. In Texas alone, 32% of architectural practices have closed their doors. We attribute our ability to remain viable (as a business entity) to our extensive global network and reach. Building our business outside the U.S. has diversified our markets and allowed us to pursue much larger scale projects. By securing and executing these larger-scale international projects, 5G has now become a contender for larger scale US developments which make our company more profitable over time. This diversity in geography also assists in minor cyclical shifts in the regional economies. We attract the very best candidates our profession has to offer. We promote our people and talents to seek greater challenge, peer-level collaboration and visionary clients. It is this talent that makes us who we are and successful. We have worked hard to retain these rare folks during such a difficult time at the Partners' expense, as these people are truly irreplaceable.
