The project is the new Islamabad office for Engro Corporation with a covered area of 3500 Sq. ft and houses the local staff and head office personal that visit occasionally.
The office situated on the 22nd floor of the Ufone Tower on Jinnah Avenue has limited glazing towards the green belt overlooking Centaurus Mall while Presidency view has sloping fixed windows that limits the height towards the end.
The philosophy of the design team catered to these limitations by defining glass walls as the main feature but opening them towards water features, art works with special artificial lighting to emphasize these spaces.
The entrance pulls you towards a street(s) with a central floating glass conference room while the open pool green offices are viewed from all sides by the Executive Office, Executive Lounge, Sr. Manager, Managers and Breakout Room. The Cafe is located at the end with a kitchen and staff room.
The office has been designed keeping in mind the philosophy of the firm and under the guidance of the Principal Ar. Suhail A. Abbasi who has set great design parameter’s that are visible in any work that comes out of their studio. The bold use of color and texture, wooden stains and varied floor finishes compliments their selective water features and furniture.One can see this translation in all their architecture & interior design commissions across the country.
Both Fawad & Naveed have learnt through their experience of wide range of projects in the last 17 years of their practice, their comfort with materials is pretty evident and they try to experiment with every new project they work on.
It was a dream project and made possible by a talented team of architects and draughtsmen at the office. The Contractor for this project is Sultan Mehmood Qureshi M/s SMQ Contractors who has executed many large and small scale projects designed by Suhail & Fawad Architects like Inbox RHO Islamabad, Oracle Corp Islamabad Behbud Boutique, Cafe & Rooftop Bagheecha Islamabad, Zaffarano’s Restaurant & Cafe Islamabad, ABM Infotech Islamabad & Lahore, Travelport Lahore, Center of Excellence Rawalpindi to name a few.
