an architecture practice led by Walid Zeidan based in Lebanon, whose work spans several countries & varies from luxury towers, private residences, interiors to object design. Recent success stories include the launch of the Okhtein Flagship store in Cairo Egypt and featured in Forbes Magazine and Vogue Italia. Wz Architects architecture firm has projects in Lebanon, Cairo and Saudi Arabia as well as most the MENA region. At WZ Architects we believe it is the uniqueness of each individual that forms WZ architects, just like each element in our designs has its own identity. We inspire each other and together drive the direction and approach to our work.
The world is caught in a duel between the ordinary and the extraordinary! We are taught to do things a certain way because of tradition. Although tradition has a place and demands a certain amount of respect, it is too often regarded as sacred. We contest this status and contend that the persistence of the ordinary is the product of established thinking (i.e. not thinking). Thus our work is about re-evaluating, re-thinking & re-making.
Building is our destiny, it represents the essence of our being, when we create, and when we build we exist!
We humans exude a most intoxicating energy when we design.
Architecture is a way of expressing oneself. We shape our surroundings to express the personality of the users of the project or the character of the place.
In our procession of ideas different points of views are negotiated. Every project is developed, researched and each element takes on its own identity. It’s the unique thinking of each individual that forms our team. The destination of our thinking process brings each one of our designs into existence.
