This one kanal residence is Designed, Built and located in DHA, Phase 6, Lahore, for a Client who came to us with a very unique approach in terms of his requirements.
He wanted us to design and construct a very practical house for him and his family to live in yet staying in the very modern and contemporary domain and not having a very open and big budget for such a job, which I, being an interior architect and my father Shahid Mahmood working as a Senior Architect for more than 2 Decades now, found a bit challenging yet very interesting at the same time. Perhaps that was the beauty of the project being a corner plot right on a spot having views from all sides, we decided to start working on the project and took our client on board with us whilst taking him every step along the journey from the very start till the end which to me personally, was and always is one of the toughest requirements for any project perhaps.
Privacy, economical and the element of a very solid and modern looking structure from the inside out being the major elements of the house consisting of an enclosed basement with an open veranda, a double height open to sky dome being the focal point of the house and a lift having access to all four floors of the house including the roof which was also designed for terrace / BBQ purpose.
This was a venture of creating a very stylish looking house, having the use of maximized space, accommodating the whole family with their formal and informal needs of using the space in most effective manner, keeping the relationship of the form and the function alive.
