Ammar Eloueini (French American born in Beirut, Lebanon) is a registered architect who established AEDS | AMMAR ELOUEINI DIGIT-ALL STUDIO in Paris. The office has operated with locations in Europe and the United States since 1999.
AEDS has completed projects at different scales in a range of geographic locations. Current projects include a 10,000sqft residence/retreat in Tasmania for David Walsh (owner of MONA: Museum of Old and New Art), an office building expansion and renovation, several residential and commercial spaces. For a decade in the early 2000, Eloueini worked closely with Japanese fashion designer Issey Miyake on six retail spaces in Paris, London and Berlin.
Over time, the office has developed an expertise in solving a large number of design problems, while serving a wide range of clients including the Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago and choreographer John Jasperse in New York.
