POWER COUPLES SERIES I
Rabih & Ghida (together for 9 years, or in their words, “forever”)
They say red is the warmest colour. When it comes to love, some are skeptical, others are hopeless romantics, and here, we’re letting the latter win.
Cue: some of Lebanon’s very own power couples; successful, beautiful and deeply in love.
Rabih Geha is the principal at Rabih Geha Architects, a Beirut-based multidisciplinary architecture and design studio founded in 2006.
Led by Rabih Geha, the team works on a portfolio of projects that include architecture, interiors, product design and experimental installations.
Since 2006, he has been teaching an experiment-driven and research-oriented workshop at l’Académie Libanaise des Beaux-Arts (ALBA).
Rabih Geha lives in Beirut with his wife designer Ghida Geha, and their two young children.
Ghida is a designer, interior architect and professor at the Lebanese American University (LAU). She used to work in furniture but started working with her husband at Rabih Geha Architects a little under a year ago. Contrary to popular opinion, the work relationship has brought them closer than ever.
Rabih and Ghida share the same passion for their beautiful family and successful jobs, and insist on the importance of keeping a good balance between both worlds.
