Since 1994, Washington, DC and Miami Beach based FORMA Design, Inc. has produced memorable, creative and thoughtful Architecture and Interior Design projects that have garnered over 30 combined awards from the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and the International Interior Design Association (IIDA), and have been widely published in over 150 local, national and International books and magazines. Our projects have also been featured on National TV ( HGTV's "Small Space, Big Style", "Bang for Your Buck" and Fine Living Network's " What you get for Your Money"). We are CBE certified in Washington, DC. We were just nominated for the fifth time in a row for Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum’s National Design Awards, a nationwide awards program honoring excellence, innovation, and lasting achievement in American design. Our work has been referred to as "warm modernism". Each and every project is tailored to the individual client, their lifestyle, their budget and what is appropriate to the home itself, so the results are always unique, based on those parameters. So, let us know how we can assist you on your project!

On occasion, when there is no space in the house for a dedicated home-office, we have to be creative and “find” the space. In this Adams Morgan project, the ample landing on the top floor, outside the Master suite, also serves as a small home office, flooded in natural light from an added skylight.
Project: Duplex at Meridian Crescent

When the size of the home allows for a dedicated home-office, (whether working from home was preferred by the clients before Covid-19 or it becomes the new norm), the selection of where to place the home-office depends on when the space will mostly be used (during the daytime or in the evenings). In this project in Alexandria, Virginia, the clients intended to use the space mostly in the evenings or on weekends, so it was placed on the lower level of the home, next to the Family Room. The space doubles as a guest room, with a daybed that turns into a sleeping cove under a canopy that disguises existing ducts.
Project: House by the River

When the size of the home allows for a dedicated home office, ( whether working from home was preferred by the clients before Covid-19 or it becomes the new norm), the selection of where to place the home-office depends on when the space will be mostly used (during the daytime or in the evenings). In this project in Potomac, Maryland, the clients intended to use the space mostly in the evenings or on weekends, so it became an extension of the Master Bedroom suite, on the upper level of the home.

Beverly Pediatric Dentistry occupies a modern, 1,300-square-foot pediatric dental office in McLean,Virginia that manages the considerable feat of appealing to a clientele ranging from toddlers to teenagers. When Dr. Maryam Mohammadi asked FORMA Design to design a space that would make patient visits interesting and comfortable for children of all ages and their accompanying parents, the design team proposed the unconventional idea of an environment that would appeal to the interests of specific age groups. As a result, in addition to having a reception desk, private offices, an open dental bay area, a quiet room for surgical procedures and laboratories for x-rays and sterilization, the office incorporates a coffee bar, a miniature theater where a plasma screen monitor shows kids’ movies, a playroom for young patients, and a computer station for teenagers who want to surf the Internet.
By making sure all functions were accommodated efficiently, FORMA Design produced a seamless and exciting project that encompassed branding, graphics and marketing materials for the practice as well as interior architecture. Interestingly, young patients and their parents are not the only fans of Beverly Pediatric Dentistry’s new office. Local dentists have been so impressed by what they see, they have become valued sources of referrals for the practice.

02/03/2020

“Patients needn’t know that this one-floor, 3,800-square-foot office of Price Medical, located south of Dupont Circle in Washington, D.C., incorporates the demising walls of former studio apartments, because these immovable structures are seamlessly integrated as basic organizing elements. PRICE Medical, designed by FORMA Design, handles other existing conditions with similar creativity, using the reception area to split the space into a private doctor’s suite to the left and the main part of the practice to the right.
What matters more to Dr. Tim Price and his staff, however, is that the peaceful, residential-style environment diminishes patients’ stress.
.
In appraising the facility that also includes private offices, patient consultation rooms, laboratory and blood work rooms examination rooms and restrooms, Dr. Price declares: “Our patient rolls are full, and the office is working and wearing well after many years. From the moment a patient walks into Price Medical, he or she is immersed in a healing environment of care and comfort that has become an essential component of the practice.”
