Paradigm Architecture + Urban Design has been recognized by AIA Pennsylvania as a 2016 Firm Fostering Emerging Professionals and was honored at the AIA PA Design Awards Gala at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts on November 10.

DGS Certifies Paradigm as a Small Diverse Business

Paradigm’s new Small Diverse Business certification by the Pennsylvania Department of General Services is added to the distinction of being registered as a Minority- / Women-Owned Business Enterprise by the City of Philadelphia. Paradigm is available to be on A/E teams for proposals and projects when having a Small Diverse Business, MBE or WBE architect would be beneficial for the team. Paradigm’s portfolio of work has grown dramatically since Krutee Shah and Nayan Shah formed the firm in 2011, and both principals have 15 years of work experience at other firms that shows very well. Paradigm has completed a diversity of project types with specific areas of focus in Public and Federal Work, Student Housing, Hotels, Multi-Family Residential, Airports and Restaurants, as well as Transportation and Industrial projects. Call Krutee Shah if you are interested in discussing a teaming arrangement.

Paradigm’s Blanc Dental Studio Wins Two Awards
Paradigm’s design for the Blanc Dental Studio in Philadelphia transformed a 100-year-old, former rubber and shoe factory into a branded, state-of-the-art dental studio. The project was honored by the franchise owner, Benco Dental, with a Lucy Hobbs Project Award of the Year in 2015 and Best Repurpose Winner in the Incisal Edge Design Contest in 2016. The new studio presents a clean, minimalist and tranquil setting while also creating a memorable brand for the practice. The result was a total transformation on a tight budget that now offers periodontic and prosthodontic services in a sleek and comfortable environment.
