Zainab Alaradi

Because her family moved around a lot during her teenage years, Zainab took each opportunity she had to go on home-shopping trips with her parents. This inspired her to start drawing plans of “dream homes” and gradually came to understand that different organizational strategies within a home can portray a certain lifestyle and culture.

The influence of these experiences and the realization that different cultures have different needs and architecture as a result, led her to choose a career in architecture and continues to shape her perspective.

Working on a variety of projects at SAI, she enjoys contributing to the team and taking each client’s vision from sketch to reality. Seeing a project to end and helping it succeed she finds the most satisfying.
