"Advocating architecture to align with today's social values while considering the city's emotional and sequential metabolism. This approach is grounded in qualitative research and rooting for architecture that celebrates the identity and the metaphysics of the place/space, has a slow approach, and seeks to leave a legacy behind."

Fatima Grand

(von Gegerfelt)


Fatima is an experienced architect having worked in the industry since 2006. She completed her studies in architecture at the London Metropolitan University and The Architectural Association.

Fatima Grand Studio focuses on redefining architecture to align with today's social values, while considering the emotional and sequential metabolism of a city. This approach is grounded in qualitative research and human-centered design philosophy, believing in architecture that celebrates the identity of its context, has a slow and thoughtful approach, and seeks to leave a legacy behind.
