Baharash Bagherian

Designer & Founder

Each project in the studio is driven by a process of investigation, experimentation and always asking “what if?” The outcomes of these studies form the basis of the design. Baharash Architecture are working holistically at all scales, designing masterplans, landscapes, buildings and interiors.

Baharash Architecture believes that great architecture is more than buildings; it’s about creating sustainable destinations which have a unique “sense of place”, where people feel healthy to live in, inspired to work in and want to visit. There is a true sense of entrepreneurial spirit in the studio, all committed to developing innovative and creative solutions that make a positive contribution to our current and future generations.

It’s the perfect way to display your services, products and skills to the highest levels in your target audience – CEOs, Owners and senior management. We look for expert companies to exhibit and deliberately limit the number of exhibitors for each industry sector.
