Philippe Saad


Philippe joined the firm in 2005 and has focused his career on the design and construction of community-based projects in the Senior Living and Multi-family Residential markets for all income levels. Philippe’s ability to lead planning and design discussions with clients and user groups has contributed to effective collaboration and successful project outcomes.

Believing that architecture is a tool for equity and social change, he is the co-founder of Project Q Communities and a founding member of LGBTQ Senior Housing Inc., two not-for-profits focusing on facilitating the development of housing for LGBTQ older adults. Philippe is also engaged locally in the Dorchester community where he volunteers in local neighborhood organizations, and at the Boston Society of Architects where he co-chairs the Design for Aging Committee.

His past speaking engagements include Leading Age national conferences, the Global Ageing Network and the University of Toronto School of Architecture. In 2021, Philippe was named a Design Champion by Environments for Aging.
