GDPdesignbuild is a multidisciplinary design firm founded in 1987. The studio is led by architects George Fong & Justin Fong. From its inception, our goal has been to pursue an all-embracing approach by marrying the creative discipline of architecture with the technical processes of construction. For us, design doesn't work in isolation, but serves as a catalyst for the realization of greater value and opportunities that can enrich and push the boundaries of an entire project.


We believe the client's ideas and needs can initiate meaningful architectural dialogue. We listen and collaborate closely with you to develop a tailored solution to suit your individual needs.  Our design studio specializes in bespoke projects for hospitality design which include restaurants, bars, office and retail spaces. In every endeavor, we place great importance on ensuring that functional necessities are met with innovative, detail-conscious design solutions. 


Simplicity is usually better. At the core of our design approach, we strive to convey a sense of logic and simplicity. We believe that simple approaches can open the door for complex results.   


We really love what we do. We are passionate about designing spaces and have had extensive experience working with and leading teams of clients, consultants, mechanical engineers, civil engineers, structural engineers, and fabricators in order to bring complex projects to fruition. With the experience, creativity, and passion to carry a project from the conceptual design phase to project turnover, we provide our clients with turn-key solutions that address all elements of the design project. For us, a successful project is one that solves a unique set of architectural problems while creating joy in the end users.
