Fátima Moufarrige Pacheco

Meet Fatima Moufarrige Pacheco, one of our many new architectural designers and staff members. Fatima comes from a family of immigrants and considers herself a melting pot of different cultures. Parts of her family are from Lebanon, and some are from Italy. Her parents and extended family grew up in Brazil, and she was born and raised in Paraguay. Which makes it hard to answer the question: “Where are you from?” but makes her see people and cultures from a different perspective.

Fatima is passionate about architecture’s ability to transform and enhance people’s lives. She finds it intriguing that while architecture and design surround us, people often fail to notice them, except when they are exceptionally good or exceptionally bad. Throughout her career, Fatima has worked on several types of projects ranging from student housing and multi-family to libraries and offices. She enjoys traveling and people watching and believes you can really get a sense of the culture just by observing the locals.
