TeamYara Addas

"Before joining Dyer Brown, Yara acquired significant design experience in a short period of time. Her creativity and dedication combined with her talent and depth of knowledge make her a welcome and vital addition to our team.”

Heather Stanley, NCIDQ, Senior Manager of Asset Design + Support, Dyer Brown Architects

Originally from Syria, Yara spent time living in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, where she graduated from the American University of Sharjah with a Bachelor's Degree in Architecture. After graduating, Yara took a position with a major global engineering group, where she worked for two years.

By the time she left the UAE, Yara gained valuable experience working with the interior design team for a shopping center on Saddiyat Island, a tourism-oriented development off the coast of Abu Dhabi. Now with Dyer Brown, she’s applying her skills and hard-won expertise to several major hospitality, lobby and workplace projects.

Beyond architecture, Yara takes pleasure in dining out, pottery, and painting with watercolor and acrylics—she has even shared time-lapse videos of her illustration skills on YouTube. She’s also a dab hand at prestidigitation, with an impressive portfolio of card tricks.
