Wondering who are the masterminds behind this phenomenal project?
This state-of-the-art purpose made building was conceived by the international architectural firm Shankland Cox from their UAE offices. The interior design was done by Isbah Hassan and Associates, Lahore.
All other services that make this building super high tech were designed by S. Mehboob & Company, Consulting Engineers, Karachi. The air conditioning system designed by the consulting firm were based on building energy models that determined ways of reducing the cooling demand of the building. The result is that despite the building being made of glass, the ttype of glass used lets in less heat compared to typical walls in Pakistan. So whilst the occupants enjoy spectacular views, energy is conserved.
