US Architect

JP DZahr

Founder & CEO

Australia Architect

Our Two International Architects have been hand picked because of their vast experience with complex and amazing Architectural Design vision and capabilities. They’ve worked in steel framing design and have finished projects that are completed around the world. Our two Architects currently have their own branding and feel they want to keep their companies separate from our brand, this way we can focus on our vision as Next Generation Living Homes.  However, we are more than happy to disclose their incredible backgrounds here.

“Our US based independent Architect has over 27 years multi-faceted design experience with many outstanding building design projects across the USA from New York to Seattle to Phoenix to Los Angeles. Since 2008 he has been providing Architectural Design and Concept Development for custom Architectural Design projects throughout the UAE in Dubai and Abu Dhabi and have commissioned designs in India, Africa, Pakistan, Indonesia, Oman, Kuwait, KSA, and in 2017 he has new Architectural projects in UAE, Majorca Spain, and Puerto Rico!”

Jean-Pierre (JP) DZahr Founder & CEO comes from a family line of renowned architects, namely his father who got him into architectural drafting before the age of computer-aided design. His father was appointed by President Richard Nixon in 1968 to 1970 to develop a mass transit monorail system in Seattle and to the Eastside Bellevue. The scope of the project was estimated at about $1 billion dollars, due to Washington States increased taxes for the project it was not completed.

Today, Mr. DZahr has come full circle to using modern day advanced architectural concept design & 3D rendering illustrations to launch his dream home series. As the CEO & Chief Project Manager for Next Generation Living Homes Mr. DZahr is the visionary and conceptual thought leader of all architectural projects designed here. Mr. DZahr, CEO of Next Generation Living Homes, states; “We are in an age of technology enlightenment. So far, we’ve been looking at home purchases from the bottom up, asking ourselves: Can I afford this home? Now, can we start looking from the top down, asking instead: What can I have, if I have a self-paying home?” What we have here is both Innovating and creating Real value! Seen here. Next Generation Living Homes is bringing this paradigm shift in home ownership by making the self-paying home available to everyone.

Cross-Cultural Entrepreneur (America – Europe – Asia) – Global Management Executive – Investor – Developer

Director Strategy & Development, International Sales LATAM & Mediterranean Europe
Senior Advisor – Project Manager

As the head of business development and international sales for LATAM and Mediterranean Europe, and as part of MDM and NextGen combined efforts, Andy leads business planning strategies to efficiently identify and embrace market, industry and economic opportunities, while continuously improving processes, increasing customer satisfaction and retention, and designing business models delivering the highest possible ROI to our partners and customers.

Andy knows in today’s world progress can only be achieved through ventures that set ambitious targets and drive them through to change the market and political systems which they operate. Therefore, he works proactively to help awake zombie leadership – leadership that is cynical about real progress- who have given up in a very practical sense, leading zombie businesses, both in private and public sectors, propped up by government loans and spending all their cash in servicing debt, rather than investing in growth. Thus, among Andy’s top priorities is educating potential partners and customers in both private and public sectors to help them realize the game changing technologies and services NextGen solutions can offer to their businesses and local economies respectively, and how much they can afford to do and save with little extra effort when done efficiently.
