With offices in Los Angeles (US), Jeddah (SA), and Beirut (LB), PARALX is recognized for balancing experimentation and pragmatism in a playful yet serious manner. Although static in form, PARALX approaches architecture as being dynamic, open and fluid structures for positive change and optimal performance. The practice’s design philosophy is achieved by combining three core strategies: an analytical-based approach, an innovative-driven process and a client-oriented service.

Focusing on the collision between all project challenges – people, history, cultural values, constraints, codes, budgets, politics and environmental issues, PARALX has experience leading an integrated design process in a variety of contexts where effective design leads to unexpected results. PARALX professional team brings diverse backgrounds and nationalities, contributing unique perspectives and approaches to our growing portfolio.
