Shid Architects is a design and research studio based in Shiraz, Iran. The studio was founded by Farshid Roozitalab (architect) and Mohammadhasan Tajik (construction engineer) in 2016. Since then, our team has expanded to ten people.
We have always tried to experiment within different fields of architecture through the growth of our practice. We have worked on several projects in the scope of architectural design, landscapes, and renovations with subjects such as residential, hospitality, and office buildings.
We appreciate the importance of context-oriented design. We try to get involved with every aspect of the project and build up a community around it in every phase. As architects, we believe our work is a human-centred platform that enhances the quality of life. We are passionate about experimenting, learning, and enjoying our journey through every step of our work and have keen eyes on any opportunity to change what is called “a job” into “an adventure”.
Participating in architecture competitions takes us out of the daily routine and gives us the opportunity to play in new fields that cannot be experienced much in the world of practical work. Moreover, we see competitions as an opportunity to interact with each other and explore our wildest ideas, with a chance to win. What could be more exciting than this?
We recommend young architects to participate in architecture competitions as, they are a useful tool for overcoming their mental boundaries and achieving various experiences in the world of architecture. We have our minds free to dive into the creative world of a competition which makes us boost our knowledge and skills every time we step down into the practical world.
