Tannaz Alavi

Project Architect

“Architecture transcends mere construction; it’s the art of crafting environments that inspire, innovate, and withstand the test of time. Fueled by a profound passion for architecture, I am compelled to design spaces that not only fulfill practical requirements but also elevate the human experience.”

Tannaz’s journey began in Iran, where she spent her formative years before pursuing her education in Cyprus and later in the United States. With a family deeply rooted in engineering and design, Tannaz naturally gravitated towards the design profession, drawing inspiration from her father’s talent, dedication, and work ethic as a civil engineer. Her extensive background spans across residential, commercial, interior design, and construction, highlighting her versatility and expertise. Tannaz attributes her effective communication and leadership skills to her experience in both architecture and construction management. As a global citizen, Tannaz is fluent in several languages, including English, Persian, and Turkish. Outside of work, she finds joy in various outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, and camping. She also indulges in creative pursuits like playing the piano, painting, and practicing yoga and meditation, showcasing her multifaceted personality and passion for life.
