Gillespie Partners
The firm of Gillespie+Partners has 50 years of experience in Trinidad and Tobago and the Caribbean region. 

Gillespie+Partners offers full architecture and interior architecture services for both the public and private sectors in a range of building types including, but not limited to, commercial, civic and educational projects. With regard to highly specialized building types, we have associated with international practices in order to garner relevant knowledge when necessary. 

We have also augmented our technical expertise by successfully collaborating with specialist consultants in the development of solutions in areas such as façade engineering, acoustics, audiovisual and specialist lighting design. G+P embodies a quiet confidence based on sound thinking and a great respect for the local context. A synthesis between regional sensitivities and global expertise defines the creative climate within the practice, and is translated into the spaces we create for living, work and recreation. 

As we continue to embrace new ideas, technologies and approaches to design, our core focus remains: to build appropriate, intelligent solutions for our clients.
