Internationally Recognized Architecture Firm NBWW Announces Expansion Into Latin America.
April 14, 2016
Nichols, Brosch, Wurst, Wolfe & Associates, an award-winning, Miami-based architecture firm, is pleased to announce that it has engaged in a strategic alliance with Alberto Reifer & Arquitectos, a boutique firm based in San Jose, Costa Rica with substantial knowledge and experience working within local codes and building methods. The formalized partnership marks the architecture firm’s official expansion into the Latin American market.
“We made the decision to establish operations in Latin America in order to further serve our clients, especially those in the hospitality industry who aspire to develop projects in that region, but desire design services that align with traditional U.S. methods,” said Igor Reyes, partner at NBWW. “In order to properly fulfill this need, we partnered with one of the most respected architecture firms in the region, Alberto Reifer & Arquitectos, and are confident that, together, we will bring a new dimension of design to the Costa Rican market.”
The design teams’ first foray into the market will be to architecturally conceive and renovate the headquarters for Banco Popular in San Jose, Costa Rica, one of the largest banks in the region. The commission for the project resulted from a national request for proposals that included several international design firms, architects and engineers. NBWW and Alberto Reifer Arquitectors seek to bring an international flair to the design of the new building while adhering to local requirements.
“With more than 27 years of experience in the market, we are confident that this new partnership will benefit both firms, our clients and Latin America as a whole,” said Alberto Reifer of Alberto Reifer & Arquitectos. “With the vast knowledge and experience NBWW holds, coupled with the firm’s trajectory in consulting, master planning and design, we are confident this alliance will bring a fresh and innovative vision of architecture to Costa Rica, raising the bar for improvements throughout the region.”
