Award winning production architect Sevak Petrosian, practices a comprehensive skillset in constructing strong concepts, planning, art directing, and thus following through to Schematic Design and Design Development. Above all, he can integrate disciplines throughout the completion of large scale, multi-faceted entertainment, resort, theme park and water park projects in an international business environment.

For 20 years Sevak took opportunities as lead designer and production architect in some of the largest companies in the industry such as Landmark Entertainment, Disney Imagineering, Paramount Parks, Universal Studios and Goddard Group. In working with these companies, Sevak contributed to concepts for Disney Shanghai, Six Flags Dubai Land, and for built projects like Star Trek the Experience In Las Vegas (US), Universal Studios (Osaka Japan), Dream World water Park and theme Park (Fushun China), and House of Magic at Galaxy resort & casino (Macau).


After receiving five Theme Entertainment Association (TEA) Awards, throughout the years for various attractions, he opened Nextep Design International  in 2011. Sevak envisioned Nextep as a futurist firm where the process would involve design strategies that continuously take the project into the “Nextep”.​
