With the renowned firm of  WS Atkins, 1993 saw Rebecca starting out as part of a three-person design team working on the Burj al Arab with responsibility for developing the overall design, bringing it to the level the world marvels at today.  While with Atkins, Rebecca recognized several commercial opportunities in the territory for a talented, ambitious architectural interior designer & approached leading Italian firm Decorpoint International to set up an office in conjunction with her to meet these needs.
