THERE IS NO BOX! 

We resist using "outside the box" as a phrase because we never assume there is a box.

MANAGE

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

FROM FRANCE to CALIFORNIA

While hiking in Joshua Tree Park, Steven Jay Slomkowski and Jean-Christian Cheze began collaborating on an idea for a company. Senior Architect Jean-Christian or JC as he is known, works from his office near Lyon. Steven bridges the gap between the two countries in Southern California focusing on Los Angeles and the Coachella Valley.

ZIBA is a Persian word that mean beautiful our company literally means beautiful work. We're structured in a traditional way and bring our work into the world through an Integrated project delivery (IPD) approach. An IPD is a collaborative alliance of people, systems, business structures and practices into a process that harnesses the talents and insights of all participants to optimize project results, increase value to the owner, reduce waste, and maximize efficiency through all phases of design, fabrication, and construction.

Most projects use international and local contractors, suppliers, and builders.
