YBGSNA – the Jerusalem based Architectural firm of Baer, Shifman-Nathan Architects was founded by Yuval Baer and Galit Shifman- Nathan. In recent years our firm has emerged as one of the leading firms on the Jerusalem scene. We accumulated wide experience in significant public projects for the Hebrew University, Ben-Gurion University, Jerusalem Municipality, The Jerusalem Planning Authority and major governmental offices.
Our firm is currently involved in a number of international collaborations and projects such as with the renowned British firm Foster + Partners, the BBC London, the Shenzhen based firm APEX and in Nigeria and Ghana. We participate regularly in both national and international design competitions and we have received numerous awards.
Our firm provides architectural services in urban master-planning, urban design, building design, restoration, historic preservation and interior design, on the scale of both national and international projects. Special skills are available in research, development and communication of urban strategies in complex contexts and multiple interests.
We regard our work as a result of a continuous design process throughout the project, in which both client and Architect work together in order to achieve best value and architectural quality. For us, buildings encompass involvement in the concept and design stage, through planning, to construction and completion of the project. Our expertise is based upon a solid foundation of budget, process and program control, and an intensive dialogue with the city, the client, consultants, contractors and end users.
