Head of Interior Design

Aldar Properties PJSC

Abu Dhabi, UAE

As Head Of Design at Aldar PJSC my responsibilities here were two fold. I was a key stakeholder responsible for the calibre of the design work coming in and I was the guardian of that high standard as it was constructed. My other role was for Aldar as a company taking up residency here on the top floors of this building. I initiated the international design competition writing the design brief and inviting four firms to submit proposals. SOM Chicago won the competition and it was a pleasure to work with them as we tackled the enormous task of developing workable schemes for a complex client on atypical floor plates.
