Farzana Gandhi Design Studio is a NYC based architecture practice that pushes innovation with a focus on sustainable and socially conscious solutions, both locally and abroad. Concepts are developed through the careful study of cultural, economic, and environmental implications.

The firm embraces an integrative and collaborative approach to design
Clients and communities are invited to engage throughout the design process in order to meet specific needs ranging in scale from small: product design and temporary installations to large: architecture and urban design.

We believe in giving back

Current projects include grant-based humanitarian work and pro bono efforts. Innovative solutions have resulted in a patent for a new roofing system and new models for rural tech education outreach.

Full services are provided from pre-design and schematic design through to construction

Experience includes design and construction of various institutional, commercial, residential, and community/public projects. We also work in product design, furniture design, graphic design, and exhibition / installation design.
