A pioneering boutique practice
BHA is a leading design studio based in Amman, Jordan. Founded in 1977 by Bilal
Hammad, and joined in 1981 by Nida’ Masannat, we specialize in Architecture, Interior,
Urban, Landscape, and Graphic design. Our portfolio includes 150+ diverse projects
across Jordan and the region - including residential, commercial, cultural, religious and
hospitality projects, in addition to the rehabilitation and restoration of existing buildings.
A number of our projects have gained appreciation at both local and international levels, and
have become subjects of research and analysis for both written publications and students of
architecture. For example, Al Ribat residential compound, designed in 1979, is still considered a pioneering experience in housing in the country – it was nominated twice for the Aga
Khan award. To ensure fine results, we work closely with some of the best multidisciplinary
consultants – including structural, electrical and mechanical engineers.
40+ years later, we are reclaiming our pioneering legacy while making sure to remain
relevant & contemporary. We are reaching out to a new generation and appealing to a
regional metropolitan audience. We are shifting our vision towards a digital transformation
route with a focus on technology and modern-day design thinking methods.
We are bold and innovative, yet humble in our approach.
Our brand promise remains. Architecture that gives people a sense of happiness, allowing
them to dream, to find moments of delight and surprise, to belong to a family, a city, a
community, a society.
We are a dedicated,
close-knit team striving for
top quality design and
thoroughness of detail,
aiming to produce buildings
that fit within their context –
physical, environmental, historical, and social.
