Introduction: STUDIO BANAA is a San Francisco-based architecture practice focused on creating thoughtful and inventive hospitality and commercial projects for local businesses and community organizations. BANAA is a certified Woman-Owned San Francisco Local Business Enterprise. Driven by both creativity and functionality, our approach to design is uniquely tailored to each particular user and site. Information-gathering through user and community feedback, site and environmental analysis, market research, feasibility studies, and general exploration is what we believe forms the basis of a successful design. Armed with our newfound knowledge and heads full of fresh ideas, we are able to produce cohesive design solutions with a deeper understanding of your project’s needs. The buildings we design prove that creativity, financial returns, and doing the right thing for the community and the environment are not mutually exclusive. We design creative housing solutions and bold commercial spaces that serve the community, increase density, and maximize existing resources.

Dane and Nastaran are wonderful people, and are very knowledgeable in the realm of commercial architecture projects. They were able to answer all of our questions and concerns about our project with confidence, and were always prompt in responding to our messages. Their entire team is completely professional, forthcoming, and easy to talk to and work with. While ultimately we weren’t able to contract with Studio Banaa, they will definitely be on my shortlist of architects to work with on future architectural projects.

Studio Banaa is wonderful to work with! Both Dane and Nastaran are amazing architects, creative in how they go about design, but really just good and honest people that know what they are doing. I have worked with them twice on two big projects in Oakland. They have been nothing but great to work with and I am happy to have them in my corner. Their level of knowledge when it comes to design is truly amazing. And, to top it off, they respond to emails promptly, answer their phone and treat everything professionally. It is rare to find such a great team that truly gets how to get things done with such a high level of customer service!
