Azaz Architects was founded in 2017, by architect Shahad Alazzaz. Alazzaz received her BA in Architecture from the University of Manchester in 2011. Shortly after graduating with honors, Shahad Alazzaz joined a Spanish firm in Madrid as a summer intern. The architect was quickly appointed as the company's representative for Middle Eastern projects. However, her ambition was not satisfied just yet. While keeping her day job, Shahad sought after a MA in Architectural Design and Management and obtained the degree from IE Business School in Madrid in 2015 as the top contender in her class.
In 2017, Shahad Alazzaz founded her Azaz Architects, approaching her passion to design with what she describes as a "new philosophy." The boutique firm provides architectural services to projects of all scales. The team, internationally based between Riyadh and Madrid, tailors each project to the client's needs. This approach adds to the broad, yet rich portfolio of the newly founded Azaz Architects.
