About 

I am an ambitious and hardworking designer with a creative and innovative approach to my work. Through the years, I’ve evolved my passion for architecture through one of my biggest inspirations: traveling. Having visited over 50 countries, I’ve been able to view architecture and design through the lens of many different architects, backgrounds, and cultures. I look forward to bringing my passions and interests as well as my technical skills into exciting future projects and opportunities.

ACCENT DG, Beirut, LB, Architectural Intern - Team Leader & Designer

My boss handed me a project to work on from scratch all by myself. The project was a coffee shop called “SIP” to be built inside Aïshti by the Sea (a luxury shopping center designed by David Adjaye). I was responsible for designing the concept, producing all the renderings, meeting with the client and the contractor, and finalizing construction details and documents. This was my first ever fully built design, created from scratch

Antoine Tabet Associates, Beirut, LB, Architectural Intern

I developed technical and working drawings of three villas in a region above Beirut.
It was my first time working on a project where we had to coordinate with the electrical engineer, the mechanical engineer, the civil engineer and the structural engineer. So, I got experience in coordinating with a multidisciplinary team on a large scale project to meet the requirements of each department. I used Autocad to draw all the detailing, schedules, elevations and sections.
