International design firm Steinberg, formerly Steinberg Architects, has announced the addition of Asheshh Saheba, RA, LEED BD+C, as Principal to its San Francisco office.
Saheba has two decades of experience as a design architect, including five years in the San Francisco Bay Area, most recently as Design Director at Handel Architects LLP. His design work strives to connect the creation of the building concept to the craft of construction.
Initiating his career with Renzo Piano Building Workshop in Genoa, Italy, Saheba then gained professional experience at firms in Houston, Ahmadabad, Atlanta, Boston, New York, and San Francisco. His diverse portfolio ranges from high-rise residential, including high-end luxury condominium projects 706 Mission and 2155 Webster in San Francisco, and 40 Bond in New York; to significant cultural buildings, notably Padre Pio Pilgrimage Church in Italy and The Parrish Art Museum in New York.
“Asheshh’s global design perspective will help guide our San Francisco office for the next generation,” said David Hart, president, Steinberg. “His unique design aesthetic is influenced by keen recognition of cultural shifts in urban living, including the redefining of social spaces within built environments.”
Saheba has a Master of Science in architecture studies degree from Massachusetts Institute of Technology and a bachelor of architecture degree from the University of Texas at Austin, where he graduated with honors. LEED-certified, Saheba is an active member of the San Francisco Housing Action Coalition (SFHAC) and San Francisco Planning & Urban Research Association (SPUR), including in San Jose, where he recently presented at a forum titled “High-Rise Urbanism: Vertical Architecture.”
