DS is a leading design office practising at the intersection of architecture and landscape architecture both in theoretical and practical areas for over 20 years with mission to create applicable, sustainable, eligible designed environments. Essential motivation of each design at DS Architecture is to build a specific microcosmos. Nature is contemplated often by the design team to generate parametric designs with syntactical perception of nature. Our design team with principle of combining artistic qualities together with economical and ethical values, considers multilayered, multidisciplinary, multicultural, contemporary complexity as a source to design neat, uniqe, influential and innovative environments. DS operates at an interval from residential scale to urban scale with competent landscape designers, architects, urban planners, engineers and ecologists.
DS is an international member of ASLA (American Society of Landscape Architecs).
