Having joined La Casa more than a decade ago, Ihab Nayal started out as one of the key designers at the then-young firm. Over time, he gradually assumed more responsibility in the office and now runs the firm’s design department – in charge of his own projects as well as growing and managing the team. Some of his most high-calibre work includes the Dubai Wharf and GV11 in DIFC. Moving forward, Nayal has been working on a number of projects across the UAE including a project in Dubai’s Business Bay for Gemini Developers, as well as residential projects for Al Ghurair and near Dubai Wharf. According to the architect, the latter is a continuation to La Casa’s development in that area.
