FK Architecture, a Fugleberg Koch Company, welcomes Youssef Afifi and Razan Almousa, effective immediately. Their diverse backgrounds will be excellent additions to the FK Architecture team and valuable resources to clients and industry partners.
Afifi is an Egyptian native who spent eight years honing his design and architectural approach in Cairo, Egypt, before coming to the United States in 2015. His design acumen, project management skills, and versatility are on full display. Since moving to the United States, Afifi has designed convenience stores, fast food restaurants, upscale restaurants, and luxury houses. He has a Bachelor of Science in Architectural Engineering from the University of Al-Azhar in Cairo, Egypt, and is approved by the National Council of Architectural Registration Board.

From the high-quality projects provided to clients to the challenging, exciting, collaborative, and positive work environment, it feels like I am working with a family. The team assembled here at the firm is phenomenal.”
