Jovana A. Abu-Ali, AIA
Jovana A. Abu-Ali is a diversely trained Architect with comprehensive knowledge and broad international experience in various high-end projects at a variety of scales and contexts. In addition to two M.Arch degrees and over ten years of work experience, she is a Licensed Architect, NCARB Certified professional and she holds LEED Accreditation for Building Design and Construction.
Committed to pursuing architecture as a synthesis of craft, project givens and natural settings, Jovana proceeds from the idea that each project can achieve a unique and coherent design solution that responds to place and space issues. The conceptual theme of her work focuses on clear details, expressive geometries, gratitude of color and materials, technical details understanding, and commonsense practicality. These approaches are pursued alongside detailed investigation into the particulars of site, client’s aspirations and recourses. With spatial sense and eye for detail, Jovana’s design process engages various media to clearly communicate the design ideas, and explore new possibilities for each job challenge. While always mindful of historic architectural values, her work focuses on contemporary design with a strong commitment to public and to extraordinary craft of buildings.
In spring 2014, Jovana moved to Boston for a Project Architect position in an award-winning architectural firm, which specializes in commercial, retail, and hospitality design. Concurrently with work on projects throughout Boston, she is involved in projects in Miami, Chicago, New York City, and Houston. Participation in multiple projects, from start to finish, allowed her to further develop and advance core competencies in all design phases, from development of design schematics, to working with clients for the duration of the project, creating construction documents, pulling permits, sourcing/supervising contractors, and coordinating construction process in the field of banking, office design and hospitality.
With expertise in her industry and passion for her craft, Jovana continues to improve the built environment through architecture that is a timeless representation of place, at once distinctive and modern while always thoughtful about future.
