109 ARCHITECTES

Beirut-based 109 Architectes is an international design studio, where context and concept provide the framework for each project’s distinct identity. Since 2002, our diverse team of architects has worked collectively to develop solutions that meet each client’s individual needs.
The number 109, when spoken in French – one of the three working languages of the office, along with Arabic and English – has a pronunciation similar to sang neuf, or new blood. When Michel Georr and Youssef Mallat established the firm, that concept was at its core. By the time Ibrahim Berberi joined as founding partner in 2003, the firm was building a team of young members who continue to keep the ideas fresh and the energy high. Today, 109 Architectes collaborates with a reliable team of consultants who continue to push our concepts and innovations. Architecture is perpetually evolving, and the constant flow of new creative blood allows us to evolve with it.
Our expertise extends to residential, office, educational and tourism projects. Recent work includes the USJ Campus de L’Innovation et du Sport in Beirut, Lebanon, and plans for the Istanbul Disaster Prevention and Education Center in Turkey.
