Reza Rahimpour



“Architecture is not just a profession, it's a responsibility. We have the power to shape the world around us and we must use that power wisely to create spaces that are sustainable, inclusive, and uplifting for our community, and which will last for generations.”

Reza’s curiosity and passion for art and science led him to the decision to pursue his future in architecture at the age of 14 despite initially considering dentistry. Since entering the practice in 2001, Reza has honed his skills in solving complex design challenges and understands that collaboration is the key to successful development. He works closely with stakeholders to find creative solutions that maximize efficiency while delivering contextual, sustainable, and profitable projects. Reza has substantial experience in hi-rise residential, mixed-use, adaptive re-use, and large-scale developments; he’s completed projects both in the US and abroad.

For Reza, the human element of architecture is of utmost importance. He strongly believes that buildings should be designed holistically, with people’s needs in mind, and measured by how well they serve their occupants while leaving a positive impact on the environment. Reza also advocates for the use of technology in architecture, and he’s passionate about leveraging it to advance design and project delivery.
