desMena tries to take a fresh look at Middle East and North African designs and projects, independent from the glossy developer portfolios.
As architects and designers living and working in this region we try to have a look on who’s behind the projects that stand out, that represent design excellence and careful consideration of location and environment.
We want to look at the design process rather than the product. Therefore we will try to present projects in model,sketch, plan and section as well as in progress, on site and completed.
desMena will try to offer an insight in architect’s and designer’s work in this region that goes beyond the ordinary level of simple press releases.
