Baranowitz & Goldberg Architects
Irene & Sigal first met while working in collaboration with Architect Pitsou Kedem on the designs of different commercial spaces. After a few years of successful joint work the two decided to establish their own practice as well as an on-going partnership with Pitsou Kedem, not only in commercial but also in residential design.
Irene & Sigal’s comprehensive experience in different fields of design allow the studio’s work to vary and include all scales of design. Whether it be a product or a building, finding the story that will ignite the creative process is the leading principle of their work.
When created within a strong conceptual framework creativity can turn to unpredictable yet coherent directions and the studio’s goal is to allow each project to pave its way toward a unique architectural interpretation.
The studio’s projects are also characterized with a playful balance between art and design while adhering to strict yet poetic principles of proportion, and a true integration between conceptual thought and functionalism.
