SOMA is an international collective of architects, designers and creatives established in New York, and led by Michel Abboud. It also has offices in Beirut and presence in Dubai.
The firm is known for ground breaking projects like One At Palm, the most expensive building ever built in Dubai, or 45 Park Place, the 667' tall tower in Tribeca, New York, that has taken the tribeca loft typology into a next level luxury high rise glass shard.
With its focus on incorporating craft, digital technologies and environmental responsibility, the firm's designs and work have attracted critical acclaim for their boundary pushing nature. SOMA's work is rising around the world today – in New York, California, Dubai, Beirut and Qatar -- with remarkable offerings of luxury residential, hospitality, condominium and mixed-use developments that underscore the firm's cutting edge appeal.
