Design problem

Jamshaid Khan and Associates is an architectural firm, established in 2007. Firm is working on mega projects in twin cities as well as, all over the country. This firm established head office in Islamabad and branch offices in Lahore and Karachi. Recently head office of this firm shifted to new building located in Capital Enclave, Islamabad. Head office comprises of three studios, design studio, working studio and residential studio. The office is designed on the concept of open planning. Now we need the interior design of the open basement, providing the breathing zone for employees. Abandoned roof top needs landscaping and is open to new programs and creative ideas.


Bluearc- Jamshaid Khan Student design competition 2017 invites students to design the breathing zone of head office of Jamshaid Khan and Associates. Breathing zone will be located at basement floor of the office building as well as roof top. Our design team needs leisure activity zone, based on idea of flexibility. This new space should allow the users to evolve the breathing zone according to requirement. As providing the comforts to employees and making them happy, improves the productivity in general.
Participants are encouraged to come up with creative and flexible design solutions.
