DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Gul Ahmed

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Office

INSPIRATION:
The inspiration in designing the Interior for Pakistan’s leading and largest textile companies Gul Ahmad, was two fold, to create a design the reflects the rich heritage of a company that has grown over three generations showing history, elegance and richness through the use of materials, while in parallel reflecting to all the inhabitants of the space how environmentally conscious the company is by creating an internalised forest and green space

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The Office uses unique marbles and stone, each cut / book matched articulately to emphasize key accent walls leading you into a central focal board room. The board room acts as the bridge tying the two halves of the office. The left being the director suites, the right the management workstations.  The conference room as the central node has been created to reflect a forest. To enter or leave you must walk through a lush plantation of large trees, engulfed in delicate wood and brass lattice works around a glass cube. The interior has openness and transparency, maximizing natural light and views out from the 23rd floor. The entire interior uses glass walls with delicate lattice work to emphasize an interactive work environment.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Upon entry you are welcomed into a beautiful reception area, made of silver travertine stone contrasted by deep black stone floor and wooden ceiling, to pave the entrance a brass sculpture was specifically developed using the corporate logo, to give the feeling of a splash of gold dust. As you enter you are welcomed into a forest, delicately held in a wooden lattice frame, forming the central board room, which further opens into a sitting room and tea bar. Both sides of the board room house the key staff and director suites with their private terraces, over looking the city.
