About us

Founded in 1985, Sanabel Landscape Architecture | Urban Design & Planning emerged to address the clear absence of landscape as a concept in the Jordan market. The founders, Hassan Al Jaajaa and Razan Zuayter recognized that the urban sprawl in Amman was effectively swallowing up the potential of green public and private spaces.

Who We Are

Headquartered in Amman, Jordan, Sanabel is an award-winning landscape architecture and urban design firm that is committed to using a holistic landscape approach in order to produce spaces that are aesthetically pleasing, environmentally sustainable and socio -culturally oriented. The firm further integrates a collaborative participatory process that engages the community, including project stakeholders and partners alike.
