Whether it be the beautiful Anthropologie stores or the experience-based brand concept created for té casan— an Israeli high-end women’s shoe company—Anne Barakat has thrived on providing innovative design solutions, managing outstanding project teams, and administrating projects from concept through construction. Her ingenuity and collaborative spirit make Anne an invaluable project partner.
Barakat’s design background includes 12 years of commercial and residential architectural work and a versatile skill set with significant experience in:
Interior design and branded environments, as evidenced through her work at New York’s Pompei A.D., an award-winning, multi-disciplined firm that specializes in high-end branded retail design, (e.g., based on the unique approach of integrating user experience and customer analysis, her team designed three hugely successful Anthropologie stores with sensitivities toward the idea of self-discovery, social interaction, and the respective community.)
Construction processes and materials, (e.g., Barakat’s informed bid sets and construction documents for té casan’s flagship store in SoHo allowed for efficient discussions with contractors and client, allowing the team to remain within established budgets and schedules.)
Onsite construction management under tight time constraints, (e.g., Anne’s on-site direction of general contractor during the construction of the Anthropologie stores in California allowed for an on-time scheduled opening.)
In addition, Barakat’s expert management of creative resources ensures flawless execution of project initiatives, (e.g., her team succeeded in realizing the $3 million té casan store from brand concept to build within a constrained timeline, thanks in part to Barakat’s strong management of in-house designers, client executives, permit Architect, structural, mechanical, and electrical engineers, custom fabricators, general contractor, and creative consultants.)
