About us


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.
