Evelyn Drive Residence
I love how the rooms of the original house were transformed to become flexible spaces with open circulation that can change according to the needs of the family. The home has a functional and interesting arrangement with ample daylight throughout and opening to different views of the neighborhood and the Valley beyond.

A Little Bit About Me
Hakam doesn’t think form should follow function in architecture, but rather that form and function should exist side by side in an integral, holistic, realistic approach to design. He also believes architecture should adapt to its culture and environment to achieve maximum function and benefit for its inhabitants. Hakam was born in Baghdad, Iraq and he earned his bachelor’s degree in architecture from the International University for Science & Technology in Syria. But he has long considered Salt Lake City his home, having earned his master’s degree in architecture from the University of Utah while getting to know the city’s unique people, culture and opportunities.
When Hakam isn’t pursuing architecture projects, he enjoys hiking, camping and fishing. He also relishes the challenge of finding a great place to get tea in a predominantly coffee-consuming culture.
