International architecture practice, 10 Design (part of Egis Group), is pleased to announce its merger with SB Architects, a San Francisco-headquartered architecture and design practice that specialises in creating international hospitality destinations. The merger not only broadens 10 Design’s geographical reach in the US but also enhances the practice’s expertise in hospitality design.
With 10 Design being part of Egis Group – one of the world’s leading consulting, engineering, and operating companies, the strategic business merger with SB Architects further expands Egis’ design and architectural capabilities. The deal also allows SB Architects to expand its global presence and compete for high-profile projects in new markets.
Complementary in nature, both 10 Design and SB Architects are entrepreneurial in spirit, ethically driven, and people-first firms, with a keen focus on innovation and sustainability. While preserving the current business structure, leadership team, and design approach, the merger allows 10 Design and SB Architects to pursue new opportunities, collaborate with a whole new host of design professionals, and support each other in an expanded geographic reach.
