Modern 7-Marla Commercial exterior and interior design in Civic Center, Gulberg Greens, Islamabad.

Located in the booming business hub of Civic Center, Gulberg Greens, our latest project showcases an exemplary commercial building designed to meet modern business needs. Positioned on a 40×60 plot with a 40×40 construction area and a 20-foot setback, this design prioritises efficiency, functionality, and aesthetic appeal.

Client’s Brief for Their Commercial Design

The client’s primary objective was to maximise usable space, ensuring minimal wastage and optimal circulation. To achieve this, we designed a layout with clean covered areas and minimised internal circulation paths.

All essential systems were strategically placed on one side, and columns were carefully positioned to avoid disrupting the basic usage of the space.

Exterior Design and Facade Treatment

The exterior of the building embraces a modern aesthetic, with extensive use of glass to create an open, inviting atmosphere. However, given the facade’s sun-facing orientation, we incorporated screens atop the glass to mitigate the harsh sunlight.

These screens not only help regulate the building’s internal temperature but also allow for comfortable working conditions despite direct sun exposure. The use of high-performance glass ensures energy efficiency, reducing the building’s overall carbon footprint.

Planning and Layout

One side of the building remains open, providing access and connectivity, while the other three sides are closed, enhancing privacy and security. The flat surface design complements the sleek, modern look, and the strategic placement of columns ensures unobstructed interior spaces.

The building also features a rooftop terrace, providing additional space for social gatherings or outdoor meetings, enhancing the usability of the space.

The interior layout is designed for maximum flexibility, with open floor plans that can be easily adapted for various commercial uses. The ground floor features a spacious lobby area, with high ceilings and modern finishes, creating a welcoming entrance for visitors.

Staircases and elevators are conveniently located to ensure easy access to all floors, while emergency exits are strategically placed for safety compliance.
