Welcome to Zabriskie


A decade of dedicated and intensive work is behind us, with a new phase of development ahead.

Over the past years, we have made significant progress and expanded the range of areas in which we provide services. We have achieved new levels of business, engaged in exciting international collaborations and played an important role in reaffirming the importance of architecture for a substantial progress of the social and cultural realm.

Everything we have accomplished and strive for in the future is rooted in the belief that technological evolution, innovation and sustainability are interconnected. They all have the same purpose – creativity in service of people, communities, and nature.


Vision & mission

Our vision is to use the power of design  to create positive changes which will shape a more resilient future. 


Our mission is to achieve our clients’ goals through an integrated approach that puts sustainability, architecture, and economy in balance.

Principles & values

Good relationships define good business

We believe that everything starts and ends with  our client relationship. We consider our clients and  colleagues to be our friends and partners and our collaboratons are based on respect, support, empathy and trust in good intentions.

We believe in in the skill of our people to create a better tomorrow

We develop and empower talents, encouraging them to follow their passion and make a difference. We bring  different teams together because the diversity of thought is the path to innovation. Each member of our team shares responsibility for achieving common goals.

The future starts today

The very core of our business lies in the process of early decision-making and anticipating solutions before challenges arise. Our projects stand out because they represent an investment into a better life. Above all, our final goal is to create a sense of belonging for future users.

Our decisions are data-driven

Without relevant data, we are at risk of making wrong assumptions and end up swayed by biased opinions. We track the efficiency of our projects using measurable data witch helps us make the right decisions.

We believe in the continuous improvement principles

We believe that  our service  must  be able to adapt to changes and that is why we never stop learning. By constantly pushing the boundaries with each project, we create changes which will make the world a better place for everyone.
