We're a group of designers, architects, inventors and engineers. We build, fabricate and construct all kinds of things for ourselves and hopefully for you!

OUTSIDE THE BOX? THERE IS NO BOX! 

ZIBA SPACES means creating beautiful space. We create permanent, portable, temporary and outdoor spaces. Every step in the process is driven by the question of sustainability and impact on our natural resources. We are design driven and use design thinking to provide solutions.

We are data driven, resource responsible, tech savvy and earth centric and we ask the right questions before we consider a solution.

MANAGE

We manage projects from concept through property completion,  and operational maintenance if needed.

FROM FRANCE to CALIFORNIA

Senior Architect Jean-Christian Cheze and Raphael Cheze from their home base near Lyon, France began negotiations in Coachella Valley in November of 2015 with Steven Jay Slomkowski, ultimately forming a U.S. company to begin sharing their knowledge and working here in California.

ZIBA maintains dynamic, flexible partnerships which allows the organization to expand and contract without the costlier burden of a large labor force. Certifications come from our contract partners like our solar advisor Hot Purple Energy and our light gauge steel and construction partner, Blue Sky Building Systems. ZIBA has a growing partner base which is expanding based on our client and project needs. The entire group has a proven track record of working alongside client recommended colleagues. 

Our projects use local contractors, suppliers, builders and more.
