My design philosophy draws inspiration from the resident culture of the peoples, and places of our commissions. Successful projects are those that become essential components in the lives of end users. Our processes include the active integration of users, clients, high performance systems, and design methodologies that make places of unique modern character.
I have over 25 years of experience in the field of architecture, with built projects in Asia and the United States. I have acted as design leader and project architect on projects ranging in construction cost from $1 million to $600 million, including both ground up projects, as well as the renovation and addition to existing properties and have completed design work for the following companies:
The Taubman Company
The Mills Corporation
The Macerich Company
Spyder Active Sports
WORKSHOP8 offers a full scope of services for commercial and retail clients including design, architecture, specifications, construction documents, and contract administration. Please give me a call if you have a project to discuss. I look forward to hearing from you
—Ali Gidfar, architect / partner
