Jorge Fontan AIA
Architect and Owner
Jorge Fontan AIA is a registered architect in New York and member of the American Institute of Architects. Jorge received a Master Degree of Advanced Architectural Design from Columbia University as well as a Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Architecture from the City University of New York. Additionally, he has studied at the Escola Tecnica Superior d’Arquitectura Del Valles in Barcelona, Spain. Jorge started working in construction as a teenager, and while doing construction work he realized he wanted to be an architect. “I am very grateful to have had the chance to actually build with my own hands for several years before becoming an architect.” This is an experience most modern day architects do not have but that was commonplace historically. Before starting Fontan Architecture, he worked for small and large architecture firms, as well as construction management firms on projects ranging from single family houses and interior renovations to large scale multifamily residential and commercial projects. “Having a background in both architecture and construction provides me with a unique perspective on project delivery and the development of architecture”. Jorge is a New York State Licensed Architect. Follow the link to read more about Architect Jorge Fontan.
At Fontan Architecture, we strive to create architecture that can inspire and enhance the well being of its inhabitants and promote balance with its environment. We believe architects are charged with the responsibility of creating spaces that complement their sites, and thoroughly fulfill their purpose while upholding a dedication to environmental, social, and community concerns. Architects not only study the way buildings are built, but also how space is used. All aspects of the user experience are of equal importance to the technological systems of construction. We aim to build lasting, sustainable, and enjoyable spaces. At Fontan Architecture, we consider ourselves lucky to be part of the process of building our environments.
