Faraaz Mirza leads design in the San Francisco office. He is an expert in multifamily housing design and is a recognized leader in high density, urban infill project design. His designs and intricate detailing consistently capture the movement and culture of the Bay Area. He also serves as a strong client leader by consistently managing and delivering successful projects to repeat clients.

"The most important aspect of my job is finding design opportunities in unexpected places, and finding unique solutions to these opportunities. I love inspiring all to expect more; and to exceed these expectations.”

Faraaz has become a leader in sustainable design through the combination of his forward thinking, spatial problem solving, and deep understanding of green technology. One of his most recognized projects, Arterra, California’s first LEED Silver certified high-rise multi-family residential project, has been called one of 10 Towers that define San Francisco’s skyline.

“Through leading in environmental stewardship, it is crucial we avoid the temptations of a throwaway culture, creating that which has the power to endure.”
