"I believe the architect’s role is to capture what the client wants and visualize it into a life experience, and to create a space that delivers both beauty and human comfort."

Magd Fahmy

INTL ASSOC. AIA, LEEP AP (BD+C), PMP

Managing Director - Saudi Arabia

For Magd, architecture is a way of life, not a profession. He hails from a family of architects and interior designers, so managing hundreds of stakeholders for multinational mega projects comes naturally. Magd’s ability to identify and prioritize diverse stakeholder interests is invaluable to OBMI, as are his efforts to ensure design excellence across all our offices.


Recently, Magd managed the design team of sub-consultants and over 300 engineers, architects and project managers to develop a large-scale, mixed-use complex of 200 buildings that range from luxury entertainment venues to functional high-security facilities, all in keeping with the project's fast-track schedules. Such expertise and ability make his leadership role valued and respected, both in our Destination Creation studio and across the entire OBMI firm.


With a diverse experience of international projects, Magd has over 20 years of industry expertise and an extensive built portfolio that spans across continents. He is a Registered Grade A Architect with Qatar Engineers and Urban Planning Department, a Project Management Professional (PMP), LEED-accredited professional (LEED AP), Registered Architect with the Egyptian Syndicate of Engineers (EEA), and an associate member of the American Institute of Architects (AIA).
