Daniel Ayad

Project Architect


As a project architect in KCCT’s international studio, Daniel Ayad applies a holistic approach to building design and construction, wherein the details refine and articulate the broader ideas to inform the overall work’s plan and composition. He leverages significant experience both in the US and abroad on a wide spectrum of project types and scales, with a design history that spans multi-family and mixed-use residential buildings, retail and office structures, industrial warehouses and data centers, and historic building documentation and restoration. Additionally, he has worked with a variety of construction types, including stick-built, prefabricated cross-laminated timber, and tilt-up construction buildings. He holds collaboration and open communication paramount on each of his projects, allowing him to serve in an advisory capacity to his clients and perform due diligence through research and analysis of different options and implications throughout the decision-making process.

Originally from Cairo, Egypt, Daniel’s interest in architecture was sparked by the diverse lifestyles and rich built environment of the city. Currently a resident of NoVa, Daniel obtained a Bachelor of Architecture from Virginia Tech and a Master of Science in Architecture from the University of Innsbruck in Austria. He holds continuing education certificates in construction management and BIM. In his spare time, he enjoys cooking, tennis, and hiking.
