Ziese Architecture was a key ally during every step of the design and permitting of our commercial project in a historic building. Daniel helped us overcome every hurdle. His calm and professional demeanor was a real asset during the complex and at times, stressful permitting process. His love of design is infectious and shows in the creativity and skill that he applied to our project.

Daniel was a joy to work with and designed a fatalistic, creative space for us in Burbank. Having been in the space he designed for us for over a year, we’ve experienced both the aesthetic and the functionally of what he’s done and we couldn’t be happier. We are constantly getting compliments. The space is fun, energizing and productive. Ziese Architecture gets my full endorsement!

Daniel Ziese has been a joy to work with. He gets it. He understands our needs, he works really hard, he is non-nonsense. He understands design too; but, most refreshingly, he understands the practical requirements of actual construction with real materials, real budgets and real building codes. I couldn’t recommend Ziese Architecture more highly.
