We share a fascination for the exploration of fresh, innovative ideas to provide spaces that are visually striking and functionally elegant. Our work includes a variety of project types, including institutional, commercial, and high-end residential, and has been published locally, nationally and internationally. For 20 years, Shinberg.Levinas has approached architecture and design with a humanistic focus that adapts to each client and project, delivering work that is clean, imaginative and playful.
A focus on design
Our award-winning work, led by Design Principal Salo Levinas, exemplifies contextual design that responds to the client’s needs, the program, and the budget. While no two projects look the same, they share the attributes of rigor and care. We strive for meaningful connection and authentic response.
We provide sophisticated solutions for clients who value design and the role of the architect. Our atelier style studio gives you the opportunity to hone your design skills and practice, contributing to the clear voice of the firm.
We are committed to projects that align with society’s loftiest goals. Whether in educational, sacred, residential, non-profit or institutional work we are committed to solutions appropriate to our clients’ budgets and exceeding their design aspirations.
We provide design-oriented answers grounded in technical expertise from the earliest planning and siting questions to the design and selection of furnishings. We eschew the mundane and embrace the exceptional. You will be working on projects that make a difference every day.
Connection and commitment
Client relationships matter. We build long-term connections with our clients, resulting in repeat work and consulting projects for a broad range of design needs. Client contact runs through the team and you will be part of the client relationship.
We staff our projects for continuity. Strong teams make great projects and we want you to understand the full project life cycle. You’ll stay with the team from before-the-start to after-the-finish, seeing your project activated and in use.

About Shinberg.Levinas Architectural Design Inc.
We are a firm that designs without boundaries. By constantly changing our parameters and approach, our design work reads as clean, imaginative and playful. Architect, client, contractors and consultants are teammates in the design process, and communication is open and continuous. By completing projects at a variety of scales and budgets, the architects at Shinberg.Levinas remain realistic and grounded. The atelier-style studio is strengthened by dynamic and collaborative relationships. Everyone contributes to the success of each project.
The relationship between a building, its immediate surroundings and the larger community inform and mold a space to create a building that “belongs” and is responsive. Our designs foster a dialogue between immediate landscapes, as well as with the natural setting. Whenever possible, our buildings use sustainable materials and environmentally-conscious systems.
Since its founding more than a decade ago, Shinberg.Levinas has earned international, national and regional recognition from the American Institute of Architects. The firm’s work has been published in The Washington Post, The New York Times, Architectural Record, Interior Design, Home ...& Design, Le Figaro and in international books about design.
Our work and our approach at Shinberg.Levinas cover a broad spectrum of design. We firmly believe that through our projects and creativity, our deep dedication and passion to the craft of good architecture is evident.
