Firm History

More than 30 years ago, our founder, Abdallah Chalfoun, and a handful of Lebanese employees shared a dream of creating an industry-leading firm, dedicated to making the world a better place.

Today, Abdallah Chalfoun Architects — including architects, engineers, designers, planners and contractors — now serve clients all over Lebanon, gulf area and African region.

Our technical expertise and creative excellence come from the rich history of some of the Lebanon’s finest engineering, environmental, construction management as well as planning and design companies. From transportation, energy and water systems to enhancing environments and creating new buildings and communities, our vision remains constant — to make the world a better place.

What sets us apart is our collaborative way of working globally and delivering locally. A trusted partner to our clients, we draw together teams of engineers, planners, architects, landscape architects, environmental specialists, economists, scientists, consultants, as well as cost construction, project and program managers dedicated to finding the most innovative and appropriate solutions to create, enhance and sustain the world’s built, natural and social environments.
