Joseph Faycal  MArch RIBA

Director

Joseph has more than 25 years’ experience post-graduation, which includes a brief period of teaching at the renowned American University of Beirut. He has had the opportunity to be sole practitioner for few years before moving to London and work for a range of practices varying in size, location and management structure. 

 

Joseph has very considerable experience of working for design oriented architectural practices as well as large scale firms, thus, giving him the opportunity to work on different themes, project sizes, and being involved at all design stages from inception to completion - all RIBA stages. He has subsequently obtained strong architectural skills and thorough knowledge of its discipline, topped with an international experience based in London in the last 12 years.


He is continuously enthusiastic to developing and working on creative approaches of design and management in architecture. He aims to establish clear targets, manages time effectively and delivers on time. He is a good team player and understand the team’s strengths and weaknesses. Joseph takes a pro-active approach to office management systems and standards to help increase productivity.

 

Over the course of his career, Joseph has designed award-winning projects across a broad range of building types in the United Kingdom and abroad.

In 2019, Joseph setup iOsef Architects a London design-led architectural RIBA Chartered Practice #20035976.

Past Experience

Joseph has strong practice and design management skills gained with high quality design firms including Makower Architects, Mossessian Architecture, Kohn Pedersen Fox and Pierre El-Khoury. This provided him with extensive work experience in an office environment, and the international and UK sectors, giving him varied skills and the ability to work effectively with different cultures and across a broad range of projects from inception to completion.
