In 2005, Mossessian established the architectural studio of Mossessian & Partners, where he serves as principal architect. His first building design in London was the Carmine Building, a 15-storey office building at Five Merchant Square. As part of the Paddington Basin Development, the building was topped off in 2009, by City of London Mayor, Boris Johnson.

In 2010, Mossessian & Partners completed three buildings: 5 Merchant Square in Paddington, London; ExxonMobil Headquarters in Shanghai, China; and a private residence in Sorede, France.
