Projects

Sahar is a senior designer and project lead who has worked from concept to completion at a wide range of scales and on projects in the residential, office, retail, and transport sectors.

She has nationwide and international experience gained at BAA and in previous practices, leading large teams on global projects. This has given her an understanding of culturally appropriate design combined with knowledge of a variety of construction practices and techniques. She is well-versed in interpreting clients’ needs, confidently leading design dialogue and iterative presentations.

She enjoys the challenge of working with constraints without compromising design ambition.

She has a particular interest in holistic sustainability addressing the wider environmental, social and economic impact of design. She is currently leading on the development of BAA’s practice-wide sustainability approach, driving innovation and targets as well as comprehensive integration across projects.

She champions best sustainability practice and is a BREEAM Accredited Professional with a broad understanding of designing to Passivehaus standards and implementing the required standards of recognised certification schemes into project designs.
