In her career as an architect, Nadia Kayat has required high expertise in the planning and execution of big projects such as train stations and stadiums. In the last few years, more and more other challenges have come into her focus, e. g. hotels and luxury living projects. These projects integrate all levels from architecture to interior design to the urban surrounding, demanding attention as well for the smallest detail as for the big picture.
