MZ Architects is a multi-award winning architecture firm founded and lead by Marwan Zgheib since 2002. Initially based in Qatar, the firm won several architectural competitions and had the opportunity to acquire extensive experience in designing and developing high-rise buildings in the midst of the construction boom in the country.
Within a few years, MZ Architects became one of the leading architecture and consultancy groups in Qatar and in the Gulf, with a regional office in Abu Dhabi.
In 2007, MZ Architects’ headquarters were reassigned in Lebanon as an architecture and urban planning firm providing services for masterplanning projects, small-scale houses, hotels, high-rise buildings, residential buildings, stadiums, cultural centers and industrial buildings spread across Lebanon, Qatar, the UAE, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and Nigeria.
MZ Architects believes in pushing the boundaries of architecture and design. Our work relates to spatial concepts, form and structure. Our approach, driven by the specificity of context, expands the image of the modernist tradition, builds upon its thoughts, and develops its notions. MZ Architects’ designs essay with pure geometric forms, intensifying the volumetric, in the pursuit of an aesthetic that has become our architectural vocabulary.
Coming from our interest in both nature and art, our approach to form gives our design a sense of force and movement, always creating a dialog of functional architecture and sculptural form.
