Third Skin Architecture wins Architecture Standard of Excellence Web Award 2017


We are so proud and honored to win the Architecture Standard of Excellence in the international 2017 Web Awards competition for our website.

As featured on the Awards’ publication:

“We are very pleased because we want our clients and potential clients to get to know us, to understand the steps in the design process, and to clearly see what is possible in a tailor-made home in Portugal,” said Joel Rosa, founder and lead architect of Third Skin – Architecture by Joel Rosa, the mastermind behind the firm and the content of its site, which was developed by the Architect Marketing Institute.

“We hope that our website helps do all of these things. This Award is for sure a recognition of that intention.”

Websites are judged based on seven criteria: design, ease of use, copywriting, interactivity, use of technology, innovation and content. Third Skin’s site features large, beautiful photos of the firm’s modern home projects (all overlook the water or other scenic views), helpful and downloadable guides for those just starting their planning process, and an introduction to Joel Rosa and the firm.

The Third Skin Architecture philosophy is that every person possesses a measure of creativity. It is the architect’s job to carefully listen and build on those creative ideas with a thorough understanding of the client’s lifestyle, needs and dreams of how that custom home will feel.

To all the involved on the project – Eric Bobrow, Enoch Sears, Hope Williams and all the team – my special “Thank you guys!”
