The office of Clemens Bruns Schaub is pleased to announce that Clem has recently been elevated to the 2018 AIA College of Fellows. The College of Fellows is the highest rank in the Institute’s membership and is only awarded to those who have made significant contributions to the profession of architecture and society. 


“I believe houses are as individual as our clients. Based upon this premise, we have never repeated a home design. Each one should be unique based upon client dreams, the site’s potential, orientation, topography, and views.

I take great inspiration from history. I do not replicate historical period architecture. I believe the past’s sense of climate, texture and romance can be fused with modern lifestyles. It gives a home a contemporary integrity. I am passionately a tropical architect. To be a success in the tropics, a home must address the climate on all levels; interior, exterior and garden.

I welcome you to view my work.”

…on Tropical Architecture

From my perspective as an architect, great Architecture transcends more than just form. The architect uses form, positive and negative space, to manipulate light and air to create experiences.

As a residential architect, tropical homes celebrate the subtleties of the climate. Their forms are used to funnel the breezes, capture the sun and protect from the wind and rain. The outdoors is the home’s principal room. The edges between indoors and outdoors are blurred.

We have studied the history of these regions, to discover the things that have worked over time. Operable louvers, known as jalousies, serve as natural air conditioners. All materials for all surfaces have a function beyond beauty.

This is true of all tropical residences whether it be Florida, the Bahamas or the Caribbean. Done well, it converts what may be looked at as style into a climatic lifestyle.
