Gregory grew up and studied in France until 1967, when he moved back to Lebanon. He has a degree in Interior
Architecture from the Académie Libanaise des Beaux-Arts and worked for several years on residential and
commercial projects following his graduation.
He also worked in art, between Belgium and Georgia, his native country, with a vision to create a positive cultural exchange between Belgian and Georgian artists.
Together with his brother Alexander, Gregory founded Gatserelia Design Int. in Toronto in 1985. The company designed a number of nightclubs, bars, shopping malls, retail stores, hotels, apartments and restaurants. One of these projects
was “the Acrobat Lounge” for which Gatserelia Design received its first award.
In 1996, Gregory moved back to Lebanon where he engaged in an expansion strategy for Gatserelia Design, building on the reputation it had already established for itself in the industry. Working from Lebanon on a variety of projects
across the Middle East, North Africa and Europe, Gatserelia Design began expanding its reach and creating increasingly innovative and internationally acclaimed projects.
Gregory received extensive television and print media coverage. Several projects in Lebanon and throughout the world have been featured in many high profile design magazines. Gatserelia Design received numerous awards. One of the most recent is the UK and International 2012 Restaurant and Bar Design Award for best restaurant design in the Middle East and Africa. Two projects have been published in the 2014 Taschen Edition. Gregory was also recognized by
Architectural Digest as one of the top 100 interior designers worldwide for four years in a row (2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016).
In 2011 he opened his own art gallery, Smo Gallery, which promotes international as well as local artists and designers.
