Sari El Khazen Architecture office is one of the most innovative entities in the region, finished projects for the most prestigious organizations and personnel, where, reputation leads to the next client.
After a childhood between Lebanon and France, Sari decided to pursue his college education in the US. He then moved to Los Angeles, where he obtained a Bachelor of Arts and Architecture from the University of Southern California, in 2001.
Feeling the need for a deeper dive into architecture and more specialization, he went further to obtain a Master’s of Science in Architecture and Urban Design from Columbia University, New York, in 2003.
New York, which he considers to be a laboratory of contemporary megalopolis, had a high influence on his way of thinking, with all the complexity and challenges this city offers such as urban integration, high density, sustainable living, mixed use sources of spaces that changes through time and requires flexible and adaptable design, its multi culture habitat which implies social understanding of life style, and its influence on living space
Around 10 years in the US were not enough to keep him away forever from his home country. Despite an initial plan of few months’ vacation in Lebanon, he ended up settling there and launching his own architecture firm, that later become Sari El Khazen Architects.
