FLOW TEAM PHOTO EDITED 2020.jpg
Mission Statement

Flow is a culturally diverse architectural ecosystem where everyone has a voice and a shot at making
a better world through the use of materials, form, and space. Our design philosophy is fueled by the
strengths and skills each partner brings into the table to achieve a common purpose: great and impactful architecture for humanity. The process is essentially an organized oasis of resources working in harmony via thoughtful collaboration.

 

Flow is rooted in the dream of the firm's founding partners to make a place for those without a place in
the AEC industry. This dream became an obsession, and it sparked momentum when the firm was invited to participate in the 2019 Licensing Advisors Summit hosted by the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards in Minneapolis. This is where NCARB shared a picture of the board members from all states and jurisdictions and none of them was a person of color. Michael Armstrong, CEO of NCARB, acknowledged that this was a problem and that they did not know what to do about it. Flow founding partner Darguin Fortuna believed that was a problem too and that the firm FLOW would insight change over the years.

 
Our Company is based out of the North Shore in Salem, Massachusetts. We serve Local, National, and International clients. We have licensed Architects in MA, ME,NH, CT, PA & FL.

Darguin not only looks at a project for its purpose and functionality but he also looks at what it could be, like a sculptor looking at a block of clay and seeing the potential within.

The Flow Design team took the time to listen to our needs and goals and got to know our organization at the start of the project. We liked that they brought their own ideas to the table and were also flexible in working with our ideas to make them better. They were intentional about giving our team time to process the design concepts, while also being willing to work with a tight timeline and helping us along the way to deliver the final plan. Given that we were new clients to the world of interior design, we appreciated their patience and ability to bring us up to speed on understanding the process. Flow Design was a pleasure to work with and we would bring them on board for another project given the opportunity.

Superb customer service! Darguin listened to my needs, what the goals were for the project, and was in frequent communication. His work is exceptional, and the renderings and vision were sleek, modern, and sophisticated. Truly a delight and I will recommend Darguin and his team to all my colleagues in the real estate field. You won't be disappointed!
