Dune: ENGLISH; "an amorphous landscape that takes shape by the elements around it"
Hai: URDU; "it is"
Dune Hai translates to "it's a dune" in English. It's our way of saying that, like dunes, all landscapes are uniquely manifested by the elements.
Dune Hai designs with the elements but also with history, art, and varying cultural aesthetics in mind. We love coming up with unique spaces that grow from the forces on their site and that honor different design traditions.
Stylistically agnostic, Anooshey believes that if a design is beautiful and functional, then it works. Principal at Dune Hai, Anooshey Rahim is a licensed Landscape Architect who aims to redefine contemporary design. She believes truly contemporary design acknowledges our cross-cultural surroundings and represents the individual and a layered heritage. She believes in beginning with what you have and using a critical process to problem solve. She is always willing to try something new and will always advocate for your needs.
Anooshey earned a Masters in Architecture and a Masters in Landscape Architecture from the University of Pennsylvania and received a B. Art and Art History from University of Texas. She was formerly a Designer at Andrea Cochran Landscape Architecture before launching Dune Hai in 2018.
