Leading Fort Lauderdale Architects: Introducing Studio Khora's Architect as Developer Approach for Luxury Residences

Studio Khora, distinguished Fort Lauderdale architects with a strong presence among Las Olas Isles architects, is poised to revolutionize contemporary housing for the next generation. Our vision extends beyond luxury homes, modern houses, and contemporary dwellings – we're shaping the future of architectural design. Notably, our flagship development 'Open to The Trees' at 1629 SE Second Ct, Fort Lauderdale, stands as a testament to our commitment.

At the forefront of architectural innovation is KHORA, a South Florida-based real estate development firm renowned as one of the top 50 coastal architects in the US. Our expertise reaches beyond local boundaries, collaborating extensively with New York architects and other industry leaders across the nation. Recognizing untapped Architect as Developer opportunities, especially within the Northeast, we're challenging conventional design themes prevalent in Colonial America's architectural vernacular.

Leading the charge is Alex Penna, Business Partner and Design Leader for Contemporary Architecture. Penna is excited to introduce this game-changing Architect as Developer model, streamlining decision-making processes for investors seeking returns upwards of 40%. By consolidating roles into two entities – the Architect as Developer and the investor – we're redefining efficiency. This synergy marries our architectural prowess, garnered over six consecutive years as top architects in the US, with the developer's insights into optimal growth areas. The result? A compelling financial pro forma and a visually stunning luxury residence, poised to make its mark in prominent locations like Southampton and New York.

Our commitment extends to sustainable architecture and energy-efficient design. With a focus on green building principles, we envision homes that reduce energy costs while enhancing market desirability. Our proficiency transcends design; we secure permits, manage quotes, and oversee construction through preferred contractors, ensuring a seamless development journey.

The allure of the New York real estate market, particularly within the coveted Southampton and Hamptons regions, presents an irresistible proposition. With a thriving economy, excellent connectivity, diverse communities, pristine beaches, and waterfront luxury, Long Island captivates homeowners, investors, and developers alike. At Studio Khora, we're not merely architects – we're visionaries sculpting a new standard for architectural excellence

Most people connect New York architects, Southampton architects, Provincetown architects, with iconic buildings such as Herzog and de Meuron's Russia56 Leonard., Herzog & de Meuron, which share a sculptural geometric forms, playful layouts, and innovative facades to create structures that continuously provoke, challenge, and inspire. The name of the game in contemporary architecture is audacity, to distinguish itself from conventional architecture through new architectural ideas, with an emphasis on visual impact and animated elements that flow with the environment.

Alex Penna, Lead Contemporary Designer, LEED AP, and Business Partner at RNA comments "We all revere mid-century architects such as Mies van der Rohe, but there is so much more to offer in this new era of contemporary design, free of restriction. Finally, architects can create modern houses, contemporary houses and any building as sculptural art, there is nothing that can hold back a great design, and this is a remarkable artistic movement for architects. The mantra "form follows function" no longer applies." Penna explains that he had his first taste of contemporary architecture while working for his revered architectural firms, Rem Kool Haas O.M.A., Foster + Partners, and Rafael Viñoly Architects.

Rex Nichols Architects is on a mission to introduce contemporary architecture in Southampton, New York, as New York architects with an innovative and fresh artistic expression for residential design. We think the best approach is to become a developer. RNA wants to be fully immersed in the contemporary art movement and will not compromise on its ability to lead the direction of architecture. Without RNA’s control over budget, style, architectural language, layout, interior design, lighting, landscape design, sustainability, and quality of construction and materials, a client unfamiliar with contemporary design may set aside the bold and audacious visual impact for New York architects to reach the best in contemporary architecture.

RNA is offering exciting investment opportunities with its Architect as Developer business model. For our investors, RNA Architects + Developers shares financial gains and a high rate of return. The Architect has a vision for the project. The Developer has the knowledge of the community and access to the construction trades. By combining the roles of the Architect & Developer there is a singular aesthetic vision, sensitivity to the natural environment, knowledge of prevailing client tastes, faster decision making, experience with high-tech sustainable building materials, project management, and access to preferred contractors.
