Dane and Nastaran possess impressive expertise in commercial architecture projects, and are also delightful individuals. They responded to all our inquiries and doubts about our project with confidence, and were consistently prompt in their message correspondence. Their team is thoroughly professional, candid, and approachable. Although we couldn't secure Studio Banaa's services this time, we hold them in high regard, and will strongly consider them for future architectural endeavors.

The experience of working with Studio Banaa has been absolutely delightful! Both Dane and Nastaran are exceptionally talented architects, who display remarkable creativity in their design process, while also being genuine and reliable professionals who truly know their craft. I've had the pleasure of collaborating with them on two significant Oakland projects, and they have consistently been outstanding partners. I feel grateful to have them on my side, given their immense knowledge and expertise in the realm of design. Furthermore, their customer service is second to none - they always respond to my emails promptly and are easily accessible by phone. It's refreshing to work with a team that always conducts themselves with such professionalism, making it a rare and fantastic experience overall!
