Santana Construction Uganda is a design-oriented architecture firm that is committed to excellence in custom architecture and design for residential, cultural, corporate and academic buildings. We combine rigorous design with construction management experience – a rare combination that leads to a distinctive design process and end product that are aesthetically and intellectually rigorous as well as financially informed. Our design values are modern: efficiency, logic, beauty, honest expression of materials, and clean lines and forms that allow the architecture itself – the space, light, materials, spatial relationships – and inhabitants to thrive. The result is an architecture that is current but timeless, serene yet warm, and universally rational while also being uniquely reflective of the values and characters of our clients.
In addition to ground-up work, the firm has expertise in major modern renovations and construction in Europe, and it’s willing to import this quality to Uganda.
