Behind the Design: Mo Sadeh


It was the cottage in an Italian magazine his dad brought home to him as a child in Iran that inspired Mo towards creating beautiful buildings himself. He has proven himself with multiple high-end residential projects in Atherton and Menlo Park. Now he is bringing his project management skills, love of thoughtful communication, impeccable attention to details, and passion for different aspects of architecture to theFENNIE+MEHL team. Having moved from Cyprus to the Bay Area, Mo carefully follows his wife down the ski slopes and enjoys challenging pickleball players.

When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
An architect. It started with an Italian architecture magazine that my Dad brought home when I was a kid (6-7). The cover page’s image specifically caught my attention.

Where do you go to for constant inspiration?
I always pay attention to my surroundings and it doesn’t matter what kind of situation or occasion I’m in. I get inspired by architectural details, arts, and music.

When did you first learn about your field of work and what called you to it?
I started pursuing architecture right after I started college. I was inspired by a family member who was an architect and a great painter as well. He used both traditional and modern architecture in his residential projects.

Best piece of advice you were given once you started to pursue your career…
Be ready for challenges, revisions and surprises, from the early stages of schematic design to finishing the project.

Teacher who inspired you the most and why…
Among all the great instructors that I had, Dr. Ustun Alsac was a different type of educator. He challenged 
me to play within the design process.

What excited you about joining the team at F+M?
I truly appreciate the positive company culture, the collaborative environment, and being appreciated and listened to at F+M.
