Lebanese architect, Fadi Sarieddine, has long been a name to reckon with in the design and architecture fields in the UAE. He co-founded his eponymous, multidisciplinary studio alongside his wife Lilas Bitar. The studio’s work ranges in scope from architectural projects, to interior design for offices, retail, restaurants and residential as well as furniture design. Drawing from the studio’s broad architectural experience, Sarieddine enriches his products and projects by coupling form and function. In his own words, his experimental approach challenges the fundamentals of traditional design. Having worked in the region for the past 24 years, Sarieddine has completed 115 projects. His portfolio of new commissions include a residential project in the Emirates Hills and One Life restaurant.
