He then registered as a member of the Architects of Rome Association in 1985 with license No. 7298. Once graduated he put his educational skills to the test and began to work as an assistant to a renowned Italian Architect in Rome by the name of Giorgio Pes and his firm Pes International. Paolo Leofreddi's work involved assisting and coordinating several projects on behalf of Pes International throughout Italy.
From 1987 – 1989 Paolo became a freelance architect following his instinct to broaden his horizons which led him to work on several executions of projects within Italy. This later led to a permanent position in 1989 -1991 where he was employed by Design 2000 International as an architect and was based in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia to follow through and act as project manager for a project on a private villa. His need for the constant challenge was satisfied with the opportunity to relocate to Saudi Arabia where he established himself in Jeddah since 1991 as an architect and has had the chance to design and execute many projects ranging from private villas & palaces to showrooms, restaurants, beach resorts & commercial buildings.
Throughout these years Paolo has worked extensively and it is evident that he has matured and grown in his experience in this field. This is reflected by an overwhelming demand for his creative ideas resulting in quite an impressive portfolio. Paolo’s public relations skills have developed immensely due to the constant contact with some of the leading local companies as well as an International supplier which are crucial for the development and execution of his projects.
