T SAKHI | Tessa & Tara Sakhi
Lebanese-Polish sister architects, Tessa & Tara Sakhi, were immersed into a multi-cultural environment and the world of architecture & art through their parents at an early age.
Having garnered experience in various architecture offices and through freelance projects in Beirut, New York and Paris, it is mostly through their constant travel journeys and shared enthusiasm for exploring eclectic environments that Tessa found her passion for philanthropy, social & civic collaborations, while Tara developed hers for photography, scenography and set design.
In 2016, they combined their strong duality of versatile talents & individual affinities to co-found T SAKHI under one harmonious and complementary vision: an architecture & artistic design platform that promotes innovation through multi-disciplinary collaborations.
Each talent, local or international, shares their passion and knowledge in order to constantly stimulate exchange, contrast, heterogeneity and hybridity in the projects undertaken. Therefore, creating a diverse cultural pattern: one that is less focused on trends and more constructed on human interactions & behavior, cultural evolution and the notion of identity in today’s world. The projects range from residential to commercial, from architecture to product design, scenography & art direction to installation & sculptural works, and finally social community projects.
