Welcome to HAZKOBA,
where engineering meets alchemy

I am Nadia Riley, the driving force behind HAZKOBA. In addition to being an architect, conservationist, and animal activist, I'm also an alchemist at heart. My ZOO design projects blend structural elements with the essence of nature. I operate on diverse planes of perception, seeking solutions and ideas that go beyond the ordinary.

HAZKOBA embodies the principles of inspiration, innovation, and transformation based on respect to the planet and its inhabitants.

If your vision exceeds traditional design and engineering, I offer a unique approach to work. Follow my storyline and let's discover what we can create together for the benefit of animals and nature.

Together we can craft a future where humanity and nature coexist harmoniously. Explore my work to witness this vision.

My mission is to create harmony between humanity and the environment.

Nadia's project fulfilled all the necessary aspects of animal welfare and necessary flexibility to house a group of gorillas.

The quality of work and design has been very satisfactory and the concept design was accepted by the gorilla EEP with no changes or amends.

Nadia's concept designs were of a high standard and were exactly what we required to proceed with our projects. 

In our experience, we have found Ms Riley to be well connected in the zoo world, efficient and prompt in the production of her promised work, and as such I would have no hesitation in recommending her company Hazkoba to any prospective clients who wish to engage her.
