Ghaith & Jad
Ghaith Abi Ghanem & Jad Melki received their Bachelor of Architecture degree from the American University of Beirut in 2012, and were granted the Areen Award for Excellence in Architecture for both their final year projects. They have interned at Raëd Abillama Architects in Lebanon and at Herzog and de Meuron in Switzerland, which gave them insight into the professional world of architecture.
Their work gives particular importance to the design process and allows the experimentation to freely sculpt their designs. They focus on being true to material and responsive to context, and that is core to any of their projects.
Ghaith & Jad continue their design explorations through their studio at Mansion, a reclaimed 19th century residence that houses multidisciplinary designers under one roof.
