Architecture is so much more than pretty buildings; it’s the intersection between a client’s vision and their story, and it’s our job to tell that story. Our buildings are developed using the most innovative technologies and materials available, connecting ourselves with the surrounding environment and the client's personal needs, while simultaneously focusing on refined detailing and craftsmanship. Having an interior design department within the company solidifies the design process, enhancing the quality of our projects, while creating a much-needed unity between architecture and interior design.

Nisreen Kayyali has worked on a variety of national and international projects. Through these projects, she has developed strong connections and affiliations with international design firms and material suppliers worldwide.

Nisreen Kayyali

Nisreen Kayyali was born in Lybia and studied in Amman where she received her undergraduate degree in Architecture from the University of Jordan. At the time she was also chosen to complete an architecture program in Brazil. Voted “most likely to succeed” in university, Nisreen is proud to have lived up to the title, having founded and spearheaded two consultancy firms in the last 20 years. She created her path in architecture and gained popularity in the MENA region. After working for some of the largest architecture firms in Jordan, she founded her own practice in 1999. She received the title of Consulting Engineer in only a short few years which was an exemption due to the quantity and quality of projects she had worked on. She then expanded to the United Arab Emirates in 2016 and founded her architecture practice in Dubai which caters to all of the emirates. Nisreen has completed over 500 projects ranging from mega projects such as airports, aircraft maintenance facilities, hotels, large scale residential and commercial buildings to private villas and mansions. Inspired by American architect, Frank Lloyd Wright, Nisreen cites modern, classic, and Spanish styles of architecture as her favorite. With an intuitive understanding of human psychology, and keeping Wright’s iconic values in mind, Nisreen designs structures that exceed her client’s expectations. She possesses exemplary skills at maneuvering between the mix of different design styles to suit the clients cultural and business needs. Through her work, her projects and her passion, Nisreen has created a unique place for herself in the Arab world of contemporary architecture which conforms with the unique Islamic culture.
