Joarc Architects is a Helsinki based architectural design studio founded in 2006. We are specialized in the design of high-end private houses, summer villas and interiors both in Finland and abroad. Thanks to our small size, each project is adequately attended to, enabling the creation of personal and innovative solutions that are specific and tailored to each client's needs.
Our strong professional skills and expertise cover a broad spectrum of architectural design. Each one of our projects has its own identity, which is formed and nourished through our multifaceted knowledge and our committed, responsible and dedicated planning. For us every project is an opportunity to explore what design can do for people. The goal is always to deliver beautiful, elegant and timeless spaces where people feel elevated, yet comfortable.

HOW WE WORK
We are immersed in every stage of the design process by providing full architectural services including concept design, design development, authority approvals, construction documentation, furniture procurement and styling. Our team collaborates closely with builders, suppliers, and craftspeople to ensure the outcome of every project is truly exceptional and of the highest quality.
The starting point of our planning is always the balance with the surrounding nature. The buildings respect their surroundings and share a dialog with it. The building materials are chosen with utmost care, focusing on even the smallest details, and the end result is always a delicate, complete entity.
We work collaboratively with our clients, seeking to understand the core essence of the project, helping them uncover aesthetic visions, supporting them to make informed decisions, and ultimately creating tailor-made beautiful spaces.
Creating material palettes is an important stage in our design process.
From Concept To Delivery
The initial consultation with a client gives us a deeper understanding of the big picture of the project: its requirements, the ‘wish list’, budget, timeframe etc. It also includes a site visit.
In this step our design ideas come to life. We show our visions by using 3D renders, floor plans, mood boards, product samples and anything else which will allow our clients to understand the concept of their project.
Once the client has approved the proposed design, we move on to a documentation phase which includes building permits, construction drawings and detailed plans for lighting, fixed furniture etc.
During the construction phase, we offer site visits, quality control and troubleshooting. This on-site support will ensure a successful result.
We assist our clients in styling, curation of unfixed furniture, rugs, fabrics, exceptional objects and art to complete and complement the space.
