narrative environment



For just over 4 years, Nisreen Moustafa worked in Kuala Lumpur at the Islamic Arts Museum Malaysia  as Head of Display. During her time there she gained an immense insight into the world of exhibition and gallery design working closely with both the curatorial and conservation departments. Nisreen found her architectural education to be her strongest asset in taking on the challenge of this 30,000sqm museum and went on to redesigned the 13 permanent galleries and 9 temporary exhibitions including collaborations with reputable museums such as the Victoria & Albert museum London. Nisreen had an autonomy over her designs that is rare to find in a museum environment which gave her an unprecedented experience.  Working within the narrative world of museums the social responsibility of interior design becomes apparent and the emotive, educational nature of design surfaces.
