Noura creates CMH’s design schemes for a wide array of project types, including recreation and community centers, restaurants, and retail developments. Prior to joining CMH, Noura designed an 8,000-square-foot medical facility that included an outpatient clinic as well as a medical spa. For that project, she also oversaw project completion, and worked closely with the design-build team throughout construction.
“Defining a strong design concept and integrating the client’s business needs in a cohesive design is the fun part. It’s an immersive experience every time,” says Noura.
Originally from Syria, Noura was raised in France where she eventually pursued a business degree at the American University of Paris. She dedicated many years to raising “four awesome kids, [which is] by far the hardest job in the world.” A long-time admirer of art, fashion, and architecture, Noura decided to pursue a new career in interior design, earning another Bachelor of Arts in Interior Architecture from Samford University.
Apart from work and family, Noura is an experimental baker who enjoys modernizing traditional dishes from home. She enjoys tending to her garden, exercising, and painting. Noura has recently taken to watercolors, and she hopes to complete her collection of botanicals. She incorporates her appreciation for nature in her work, saying, “‘Visual comfort’ is essential in any space. This can be as simple as having access to views of the outdoors or living and working in a space that promotes well-being.”
