Our Story


In 1991, two young fresh Architects from Lebanon completed their undergraduate studies at the “American University of Beirut”.

Enthusiastic and Passionate about Architecture and Design, and eager to launch their career, both partners envisioned a private practice where they would be able to capitalize on the tempting opportunity of serving the promising local market.


End of the year 1992, and while both partners were already appointed as assistant instructors at the “American University of Beirut/ Department of Architecture“, “3rd DIMENSION Architects” was founded, and signed its first consultancy contract for a residential building in Beirut Suburbs.

In 1992, Lebanon was at a very important turning point, the civil war has ended and reconstruction of a ravaged country was evident.

“3DA” was among the first to adopt CAD platforms to assist the small team at the time, in the Design and the production of all necessary construction documents.

This approach has secured “3DA” an edge among its peers. The founders continuously invest time and effort in technology and automation.


"3DA" practice, is BIM oriented since 2005 using "AUTODESK Autocad Architecture"
and since 2010 using "AUTODESK Revit".
We produce all BIM models following the latest industry standards.


The Journey, was a continuous self challenge. Faith and persistence, was the driving force behind the achievements that marked the path.

In 1996, in an attempt to diversify “3DA’s” activities, and expand on the hands-on knowledge in the construction industry the team ventured in a “design & built” residential middle income project in the capital Beirut. The project was a success in all aspects, except the financial, due to a major setback and recession in the economical situation in Lebanon.

This setback,  as major as it was, did not discourage the couple, and diversification to additional services such as real estate appraisal and consultancy helped sustain the growth of their practice.


The year 2000, marked another milestone that reinstated “3DA” in the Design & construction field, when the team successfully designed and supervised the construction of a massive private residence for a senior General in the Saudi air force in Chemlane/ Lebanon, a scenic mountainous village East of Beirut .
