Balsam Madi Studio

Balsam Madi Studio is an architecture and urban design consultancy. We are young creative architects and designers that engage in a range of services from design to contracting. Balsam Madi, the studio founder, graduated from the American University of Beirut with a bachelor of architecture and later pursued an MSc at the University of Stuttgart in Integrated Urbanism and Sustainable design. Her international professional experiences with offices Arata Isozaki Architects in Tokyo, DGT Architects in Paris and Atelier Hapsitus in Beirut have injected several cultural aesthetics into the Studio works. The studio believes that architecture and contracting are one entity and should be lead by an architect that oversees the design until the end to maintain the integrity of the initial intention and the client’s needs. We love materialising our ideas into realities.

The Studio also specialises in sustainable practices in design and construction. Sustainability is taken into consideration in all its aspects: cultural, social, economic, environmental, and legal. Therefore the studio adopts an integrated approach involving multidisciplinary consultants throughout the different project phases.
