The UK-based firm has expanded globally and now employs over 225 talented individuals across six offices worldwide. The firm currently has offices in London, Phoenix, New York, Hong Kong and the UAE, besides its latest addition in Riyadh. Zebra has been active in the MENA region for the last 25 years, delivering stunning projects such as the Sahara Mall food court, the Telal El Malqa residential project and GISSAH stores, as well as other confidential projects. The opening of the Riyadh office is testament to Zebra’s commitment to the region.
Heading the team of 15 in the Riyadh office is Shady Wanis, a multi-disciplinary designer with more than two decades of commercial experience in Egypt, Canada, the UAE and Saudi Arabia. Wanis previously worked with Zebra in its UAE office and at The Design Agency in Toronto. His team has extensive experience working across various sectors such as retail, F&B, hospitality, commercial and shopping malls.
“Whilst we have been working with clients in the Kingdom for the last two decades, we are happy to have our feet on the ground full-time and to be able to service our clients better,” said Wanis. The new Director of Zebra – KSA continued: “It is an exciting time for the Kingdom and an exciting time for Zebra. Our growing Riyadh-based team is made up of Saudi nationals and expatriates and is a blend of experienced designers with global experience and young local talent.”
