Your one stop choice for an Architect in Grenada!

 

Dynamic Latitude is a Grenadian based architectural design and planning studio founded by Grenadian Architect Lachaba Carr Joseph. The name Dynamic Latitude is derived principally from “Dynamic Architecture” which is an branch of architecture that embraces movement and dynamism volumetrically and functionally in architectural designs. To complete the name giving reference to the Grenadian origin of our studio, the word Latitude inexplicitly draws reference to the latitude of Grenada at 12.1 degrees North the equator.

Dynamic Latitude is currently engaged in design and planning work within the Tri island state of Grenada, having done a close to a dozen projects in Grenada. Our work mainly comprises of residential projects and a couple non-residential projects.

As a registered Grenadian based studio our main clientele are owners both foreign and local of property in Grenada. Never the less with an online location, our work extends beyond Grenada through collaboration with professionals abroad on a conceptual level. By extending our design sensibilities beyond Grenadian architecture our design work is aesthetically contemporary with a tropical vernacular. As such the aim of our design work in Grenada is to provide top notch architectural design and planning services.

 

Locally Dynamic Latitude provides full design and planning services inclusive submissions for governmental building approval of any project type, construction drawings and project tendering and costing and construction supervision and inspection of proprietary projects in Grenada.
