Video Description

Mohamad Mokbel didn’t really know what Interior Architecture was until he majored in it, and then fell deeply in love with design, spaces and ideas. For Mohamad, it's beyond the product or the project. It's about offering the client a special experience, a journey or a dream to be a part of, something they aspire to achieve, so that they say, “I just love it here!” Watch Mohamad’s Nooreed Insider Interview and see if you have the creativity and vision to become an Interior Architect & Designer!


Mohamad has been an Interior Architect for almost ten years. He didn't know what he wanted to major in after graduating high school until one day, he stumbled into the Institute of Fine Arts at the Lebanese University. When he saw and learned more about the faculty of Interior Architecture, he instantly fell in love with design. He graduated with a degree in Interior Architecture and since then, he's been working hard to develop himself professionally and personally.

To some, art is simply a task on a to-do-list sheet. Mohamad believes it's more than that. Being artistic is being beautiful. That's why he practices his creativity in design, architecture and even music.
