Deb and Marco both have decades of experience in commercial, retail, and residential architecture in Southern California. For years, founders Deb Sands and Marco Hanawi sat next to each other at the same office. From reviews of each other’s work to deeper conversations about the field of architecture, their shared passion for finding answers to client’s challenges quickly emerged.
In 2020, Deb and Marco decided to leverage the strengths of their expertise by starting SH Partners in Orange County, California. Together, they’ve aggregated their wealth of knowledge, network of partners, and commitment to clients to deliver exceptional results. Most importantly, since this firm was founded on relationships, they understand the value of trust that is critical to their relationship with clients. The primary goal of SH Partners is to consistently exceed expectations.
