The architectural practice of Joe Kelly, AIA, and Gwen Leroy-Kelly, AIA, has been awarded the 2018 AIA Florida/Caribbean Merit Award of Excellence for Interiors for AdRizer. Hive Architects Inc. has been responsible for all of the tenant improvement work located in the BOTA Center in the revitalized Sarasota Rosemary District. This includes AdRizer, a local, young, and fast growing tech company, who occupies the entire second floor of the building. Hive Architects’ body of work includes residential architecture, interior design, and private commercial projects with a focus on regional modernism.
Founded in 2016 by Principal, Joe Kelly, AIA, hive architects inc. specializes in residential architecture, interior design and private commercial projects. Together with his wife and partner Gwen Leroy-Kelly, AIA, the principals have over 26 years of experience developing a broad range of architectural projects.
To obtain a deeper meaning in the experience of each project, the work of Hive Architects focuses on concept driven design. Our philosophy and approach to modernism is based on an analysis of the regional and climatic aspects of the site, the client’s programmatic and functional desires, and the crafted selection of materials and building systems. Through this investigation and the distillation of all project aspects, we strive to develop a concept, or organizing idea, that continues to influence and inspire our design process and decisions. With no preconceived notions of form, the resulting architecture embodies the character of its local environment, culture, and ultimately the human experience of its inhabitants.
From concept to completion, the work of Hive Architects is based upon a symbiotic interdisciplinary collaboration that includes our clients and consultants. The team’s continued interaction and communication of various perspectives results in a refined architectural solution.
