Coming from Beirut, Lebanon, Elie finds 3North’s wide variety of projects and IQ process is what appeals to him the most. He believes that when done properly, architecture does not just involve designing within the boundaries of the project, rather it creates an interaction mechanism with its surrounding, and in return, contributes to a better picture for the city. Elie is passionate about developing projects that are perfectly integrated into their site, respect history, replicate culture, and embrace the surrounding activities. Being new to Virginia and the United States, Elie is excited to explore different places in and out of state whether it be historical locations, colleges, or wineries.
Elie received his Bachelor of Architecture from Notre Dame University.
