Fouad Samara Architects
Fouad Samara Architects is a Beirut-based practice whose founder Fouad Samara has a significant experience of academic and professional activities in the UK. Fouad Samara studied architecture at the University of Bath before setting up his practice in Lebanon in 1997. The practice currently designs a range of corporate, educational and residential buildings across the Middle East, taking much of their inspiration from modernist architecture. Previous projects include The Mondrian – an iconic 27-storey residential tower on Beruit’s skyline; Modulofts – a building of seven duplexes with moveable walls set in Beirut’s Ashrafieh neighbourhood; and The Sheikh Nahyan Center Of Arabic Studies and Intercultural Dialogue (CASID), a new addition to the University of Balamand. Caro Communications is supporting the practice to promote a number of projects within the UK and the Middle East, the first of which is Modulofts and CASID.
