May’s Must-Reads – Get Up To Speed with Commercial to Residential – Newsletter Edition #05

Greetings design enthusiasts!

We’re here with yet another edition. With May coming to a close, we’re all set to conclude Home Improvement Month and dive headfirst into a sizzling June with our hands full with ongoing projects. The studio remains as bustling as ever, proving that even in the sweltering heat, the world keeps on turning – and so do we! 

In this edition, we proudly present two projects one residential and one commercial, located near our main office in the bustling heart of Gulberg Greens, just a stone’s throw away.

As commercial building trends flourish in Gulberg Greens, so does the inclination towards countryside farmhouses, offering respite from the city bustle. Positioned strategically between Islamabad and Rawalpindi, Gulberg emerges as a pivotal junction, poised to become the next bustling business hub in the capital. With tech industry giants establishing their headquarters here, Gulberg holds immense potential for growth. One standout example is the awe-inspiring 345 Telenor Campus, a visionary creation by Arcop. Joining this remarkable development are Skypark One and One Expressway by Suhail and Fawad. And not to boast, but adorning the expressway is Primarc’s The Palazzo, alongside these illustrious names.

A narrative of facade revival of a farmhouse: Jamal House

This renovation project at Jamal House in Gulberg Greens, Islamabad, commenced with the client’s request for an upgrade while the construction was underway. Focused on facade enhancement and landscaping, our endeavor seamlessly blended tradition with modernity. We utilized intricate jaali patterns to ensure privacy without compromising ventilation, particularly in the master bedroom and servant areas.

Farooq House: Redefining urban living

Situated on a scenic park-facing plot, Farooq House is an architectural marvel that embodies sleek, contemporary living. The challenge of a compact 25′ x 45′ or 5 Marla plot was met with innovative design, optimizing space for a single-family unit with a guest bedroom and basement pool. Fixed windows enhance privacy and security, addressing the client’s allergy concerns.
