Founder & Director

As an architect and structural engineer hailing from Algeria, my professional journey has been marked by a relentless pursuit of knowledge and a commitment to creating architecture that reflects both traditional roots and contemporary innovation. 

Dedicated and visionary Director of Design and Architecture with a proven track record of leading dynamic teams to create innovative and impactful spaces. With a keen eye for detail and a passion for blending aesthetics with functionality.

After completing my education at an Engineering School in my hometown, my quest for architectural excellence led me to traverse borders, taking me to France and Switzerland. In these countries, I immersed myself in rigorous studies to refine my skills and broaden my understanding of architecture and design. The blending of my North African heritage with modern architectural trends became a defining feature of my work.

Driven by a passion for responsible architecture, I sought to integrate local cultures and contexts into my designs. This commitment to cultural sensitivity took a new turn when I embraced a significant challenge in 2015 – establishing my architectural presence in Vietnam. This decision was not only an exploration of the Vietnamese culture, but also a strategic move to add an international dimension to my professional repertoire.

During my time in Vietnam, I dedicated myself to realizing the local vision and culture in architecture. By infusing modern architecture with the rich tapestry of traditional Vietnamese elements, I aimed to create spaces that seamlessly blended the old with the new. 

In addition to this, sustainability has been a cornerstone of my architectural philosophy. I have actively incorporated sustainable practices into my designs, reflecting a deep-seated commitment to environmental responsibility. 

My leadership extends beyond conventional design, fostering a collaborative and inspiring environment that empowers team members to push boundaries and deliver exceptional results. Throughout my career, I have consistently demonstrated the ability to balance creativity with practicality, optimizing spaces for both visual appeal and user experience.

With a commitment to staying at the forefront of industry trends, I pride myself on driving innovation and embracing emerging technologies in the field of design and architecture. My comprehensive approach to project management and dedication to exceeding client expectations have been instrumental in achieving success in a competitive and ever-evolving industry.
I am enthusiastic about leveraging my expertise to continue shaping transformative and influential design solutions that leave a lasting impact on the built environment.
