Philosophy

 

Since Its Foundation, Gil Even-Tsur’s Architecture Workshop Has Developed A Diverse Body Of Work Including Residential, Cultural & Commercial Buildings Both In The US And Abroad.  

We aspire to create buildings that are quiet, powerful, intelligent and beautiful. Buildings that are rooted and erected from the depths of the past into the future. Gradually deepen, understood and loved over the passage of time. 

We believe in buildings realized through passion, understanding and a sense of intimacy with the site, its potential, and the people who bring life to it.
