P.J. Berjis

Director of Design, Principal

Fascinated by three-dimensional form, P.J. has instinctively sought out various avenues in which to pursue his curiosity. Starting his career in Frank O Gehry’s design studio, P.J. gained acclaim as a Project Architect for the Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles. He found his tenure there to be the perfect environment in which to explore three-dimensional form. From there he moved to WET Design, again as a Project Architect and successfully developed methods in coalescing hydraulic principals with forms and textures. Inspired by these breakthroughs, P.J. left WET Design to co-found Studio H2O so that he could pursue his theories and to further develop new concepts in water art. In addition to his work with hydrodynamic forms, P.J. has developed innovative designs for a select, discrete Clientele and holds two patents for packaging designs for the motion picture industry. P.J. holds a bachelor of architecture degree from the Southern California Institute of Architecture and a Master of Architecture degree from the San Francisco Institute of Architecture. He also completed various courses at Frank Lloyd Wright’s School of Architecture, Taliesin West in Scottsdale Arizona. Some notable projects in Mr. Berjis’ portfolio of water design include: Mirage water and Fire Features in Las Vegas, Nevada; Columbus Circle water feature, in New York City, New York; Somerset South Mall water feature, Troy, Michigan; Houston Galleria water feature, Houston, Texas; Dubai Marina water feature, Dubai, U.A.E.; and Mall of the Emirates water and fog features, Dubai, U.A.E.

Michael Sibayan

Project Designer

At an early age, Michael was inspired with the concept of creation. During the remodel of his childhood home, he was immersed within construction process. Here he saw large beams, wooden frames, and sheathing come together all the while his family still lived in the previous house on the same lot. Once a good portion of the house was built, they moved into it and demolished what was left of the existing rooms. This process fascinated Michael and inspired him to earn a Bachelor’s degree of Architecture at Woodbury University. Today Michael is driven to combine art and
architecture to produce material poetry with elemental accents. As a Project Designer he looks forward to integrate harmonic composition of Lighting, Space, Landscape and Water Features that immerse users.
