• The Firm
With over 30 years of commitment to
excellence in design and the built environment
Dewan Architects & Engineers has been leading the evolution of the Middle East's booming architectural and engineering design sector for almost three decades. Its founder and current Chairman and Managing Director, Mohamed Al Assam, established the inaugural Dewan office in Abu Dhabi in 1984 and successfully completed Dewan's first high-rise commercial project, Baniyas Tower, in 1988, which cemented Dewan's presence as a major player in the regional architectural scene.

In 1999, Dewan's Dubai design studio was launched and it has rapidly become a prominent and integral contributor to the emirate's burgeoning and iconic skyline. Dewan further entrenched its leadership market position by establishing new offices in Iraq, Libya, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Philippines, and Qatar. Today Dewan is recognised as a global multi disciplinary practice and is ranked as one of the top three firms regionally, and in the top 50 firms globally as rated by leading industry publications and its peers.
