Based in Beirut and Venice, T SAKHI is a multidisciplinary architecture and design studio co-founded by Lebanese-Polish sisters Tessa and Tara Sakhi. The studio places human interaction at the core of their practice, drawing from the emotional and physical experiences by incorporating senses and memory.
Their synergetic projects are diverse and range from small-scale architecture, urban installations, commercial and residential design, collectible objects, scenography, and film. Despite their versatile talents and contrasting affinities, the sisters combine their duality to create a hybrid occidental-oriental inspiration and collaborate with creatives and artists from diverse cultures, provoking an exchange and dialogue to reach craftsmanship and innovation.
Their work has been exhibited in Beirut, Venice, Paris, Milan, London, and Dubai. They donated works in Beirut, London, and Paris to support several NGOs in scholarships for architecture students, fund reliefs for Beirut’s reconstruction, reforestation, and sexual health. In addition, they have given lectures and workshops with universities in Dubai, Sharjah, Sydney, and London and participated in talks and conferences with institutions in Beirut, China, and Miami.
Their projects have been nominated for awards in China, Milan, and Berlin, and have been highly published worldwide in magazines and online platforms.
