Founded in 2003 by Arch. Asaf Gottesman AA Dip RBA II, and Arch. Ami Szmelcman DPLG, Gottesman–Szmelcman Architecture is an international practice that focuses upon projects requiring innovative, multi-disciplinary solutions. It has developed particular skills in the domains of hospitality, urban planning, mixed use residential developments, and in one-off iconic developments that tend to crystallize key issues and generate extra-ordinary values. The practice specializes in concept development, partnering with highly qualified local practices and consultants to deliver a multi-tier products that go beyond the conventional architectural package. Gottesman-Szmelcman Architecture’s approach is based upon a profound understanding of architecture & urban planning yet extends its innovative skills to incorporate environmental considerations, commercial analysis, program development, business plans, financing and marketing strategies. These additional skills enabled the practice to deliver a richer product, one that maximizes the inherent attributes of a site and infuses it with the kind of additional values that can only be created through a multi-tiered approach.
In 2010, Gottesman-Szmelcman Architecture expanded it activities with the creation of a sister company named GS Interiors.
