Principal Abdulhamid Darani has a wealth of experience and accomplished projects in multiple contexts. Architect Darani uses his broad experience to craft an innovative and versatile architectural outlook for every unique project.

We focus on working closely with clients to create tailor-­made projects, and faithfully interpret their vision. Above all else, the firm values client trust, and unparalleled quality in the expression and execution of its ideas.

We are deeply committed to environmental stewardship, and for each project, the team considers the cultural roots of the structure, and how the building will be best integrated into its environment; the view, the indigenous materials, and the flow of the surroundings. Hallmarks of our projects include contemporary twists on Islamic and swahili architecture; and leveraging natural architecture to showcase natural light, and frame private gardens and open courtyards.
