We are elated to share that Amine Khemakhem has joined the firm as a Principal and Health Market Leader in our Los Angeles office.

Amine brings a wide range of design experience across a wide variety of large-scale projects in diverse healthcare settings. With more than 17 years of professional experience, he brings his strong design perspective to projects big and small, from research hospitals to outpatient facilities to clinic spaces, both in the United States and internationally.

“I’m proud to join a company that lives and breathes its ethos in all the work it does,” said Amine. “Living-Centered Design is not just a philosophy here but a mission that improves the spaces inspired by it. I’m excited to get to work and design the next generation of spaces that change people’s lives for the better.”

Throughout his career, Amine has held numerous leadership positions and developed and mentored talent, particularly in healthcare design. His previous clients include Dignity Health, University of Southern California, Valleywise Health System and various hospitals in the Middle East.

Amine’s arrival comes alongside numerous accolades and exciting projects in progress. Last year, we earned distinction as Engineering News-Record’s California firm of the year. Ongoing projects for our southern California health practice include the LAC+USC Restorative Care Village, Cordilleras Mental Health Campus, MLK Child and Family Well-Being Center and more.

“Our California offices are experiencing incredible growth right now and Amine joining to helm our Los Angeles health practice is another exciting milestone for us,” said Hazim Rabadi, AIA, LEED AP, leader of our Los Angeles office. “He is a distinguished and thoughtful leader and the depth and breadth of his experience speaks volumes. He will be a tremendous asset to our firm and to executing Living-Centered Design projects for our clients.”
