Creating Places


"Architecture is the world in which we live... an artistic science and a social art... it is the reflection of evolution and also the witness of traditions". - Jamal Lamiri Alaoui, owner and founder of JLA



We believe architecture has the power to change lives and improve society as a whole, contributing to our cultural identity and drawing people together across social and economic divides. JLA's designs always put people first, enhancing quality of life for those who inhabit them as well as for the community as a whole.
