Founded in 1992, we have earned a solid recognition for what we do. But we continue to advance and welcome new challenges.
We deliver precise thinking and artistic design that can turn your objective from virtual to real. The core of our strategy is modern, perceptible, elegant results.
A step further beyond Bauhaus' three F’s - form follows function is what we see as form fuses function - parallel evolution at every level of development with complete transparency of building interaction and automation at all stages of its life. And yet one more F - for fun, an integral part of our credo. The delicate definition of space, the fluid transition between different parts of a total volume, which are defined without vertical partitions and still retain their identity and crisp function; and besides being poetic this also becomes a fact. Controlled transparency is yet another technique, which works in close connection with passive sustainability to enhance building performance.
Furthermore and back to basics, PAAstudio provides the proficiency of executing the job within the required time and budget.Explore services

As well as add much more to it. In addition, our artistic portfolio brings beauty and function to a new level of experience. Did we mention that architecture is an applied art? We elevate it to its rightful place and we are not exaggerating - we happen to live with and within our own creations every single day.
Then comes the fun part.Explore services
The Architect as the Owner's Agent has no right over means and methods of construction. This "love-hate triangle" is more likely to result in an unpleasant process and a relatively mediocre end product. Contractors also don't comprehend well new complex building data. As a Design | Build firm, PAAstudio has a direct method to remedy all that. Our comprehensive hands-on BIM | BUILD approach eliminates all hurdles by providing a clear and easy answer.Explore services
We did not invent the Design | Build operation. We just took it a bit further. Call it the BIM | BUILD approach. Our advanced 3D modeling systems allow for the creation of a detailed, true-to-reality building model and integrated elements + quantity data, which are translated directly to Construction Documents and to construction site without ambivalent interpretations. Our proprietary BIM | BUILD workflow stands clearly in a league of its own.Explore services
Of course, we offer design only services as well as a CM package per project specifics. However, to total PAAexperience is the best way to utilize our full potential. Also the best way to save on professional fees and benefit from efficiency of the total package. For instance, hillside design expertise is something that comes with time and skill and depends on quite a few additional factors, such as tenacity and adequate code interpretation. Recognition for doing that says it all.Explore services
With our record of publications + awards, we can all but guarantee, that your project will get published or, even better, receive a design award. In common RE practice, such projects bring ±10% increase in property value. The calc is simple - design fees relate to construction cost (CC), which itself is ≪50% of the sales price. If we increase the overall RE value by ~10% and design fees are ~10% of CC, simply working with us pays 200% in return, earning back the full design fee + profit as a bonus!Explore services
PAAstudio's BIM | Build method provides the most comprehensive change and revision implementation process. Alterations could be done at any stage of the project with fully automatic building documentation update. From the office main frame to any mobile device in true VR via BIMx. We not only design, we make it real.Explore services

Good design actually pays for itself. As mentioned before, it is a well known real estate fact, that a publication or design award brings 7+% of the total value increase. This covers all architectural and most contracting fees. In other words, working with us is just a profitable enterprise.let's talk
Since opening practice in Europe in 1984, Ivo Venkov has designed a number of important projects in the United States and overseas. His architectural expertise ranges from private residences to assembly facilities and has earned him international recognition and awards. Since founding PAAstudio in 1992, Ivo has been developing a broad spectrum of works, which have established PAA's line of thinking as well as the company's perception for functional design. He has also a successful art career with a number of works in international museums and private collections. Coincidentally, he is also author of a rock opera in 1984, which once again shows, that architecture could be considered 'silent music'. Sometimes silent, that is.
Upon earning MA degree with specialization in Environmental and Historic Monument Preservation, Rossi Venkov has worked as a licensed architect in Sofia, Bulgaria. She joined PAAstudio in 1999. Since then, Rossi has been as the company's other design partner and Creative Director in both aesthetics and functional, as well as regular office matters. She is also the office code expert- recent successful LA Municipal Code interpretations and negotiations with City of Los Angeles Zoning and Building and Safety officials are primarily attributed to her abilities. Somehow she also manages to be a dedicated mother of two.
Based on the good capacity of our CAD mainframe, we run an online BIM server, which allows all consultants to participate directly in the Virtual Building Model. The construction process follows closely the approved Construction Documents, with changes implemented directly into the BIM database.
