About Us

In 2003, a Kenyan Architect and a Canadian Architect formed FNDA Architecture (K) Ltd. In 2011, one of the directors, Architect Andrew Kimani left the firm and founded FHG Architecture (K) Ltd.

Solutions to architectural design are not the product of the architect alone, but the sum total of the successful interaction of the design team and the owner. We approach each project with intensive effort, defining the architectural problem within the client's requirements. The participation of the user is essential in developing and analyzing options. Successful listening and researching phases of the process ensure a design which not only meets the basic requirements of the client but also facilitates a higher level of architectural achievement mutually satisfying to the client as well as the professional. The personal attention and involvement of the principals is the key to the success of this design process. With this methodology we have built successful projects and long term client relationships. We believe good design is good business and can practically illustrate how our work has had direct positive impact to the bottom line of our clients.

Project administration is an integral part of achieving a successful project. We believe that successful projects can be achieved through building a coherent team consisting of the Owner, Architect, Consultants and Contractor. Here, the role of the architect is of paramount importance to ensure that all parties are well informed through proper coordination and well-defined procedures. As far as the project implementation is concerned, the architect plays the role of chief coordinator and team member of the various parties. At the time of the implementation, we provide regular site visits and our phone lines are always available for discussion with the Owner and Contractor to ensure timely responses in order to facilitate effective information flow to and from the Contractor.

Success of our completed projects speaks for themselves. We believe that the best quality control is achieved through respect of the trades-people and their skills, coupled with flexibility and creativity of the architectural team. This means that there should be will on the part of the architectural team to review alternate methods of achieving the desired results. This can only be achieved when mutual trust is developed between the Contractor and the Architect’s team and administrative machinery, which is in place, should be there to assist the project and not to encumber its successful implementation.
