experience - Habib Fida Ali Architects

Report
Habib Fida Ali has been involved in a substantial number of projects ranging from single family
residences and public buildings to high rise blocks and educational institutions. Its consistent yet
innovative design approach in exteriors as well as interiors has given the firm a place amongst
other renowned architects and modernists practicing today. Some major projects the firm has
designed include LUMS(Lahore University of Management Sciences), Shell House, Karachi Club
Shell House- Karachi
Annexe and Allied Bank Limited. Our building’s respond well to functional, technological and
cultural factors and can adapt to any environment it is built in. Habib Fida Ali has created a
signature style of its own that is reflected in all its projects thus making them distinct within its
surroundings. Habib Fida Ali’s design philosophy is not that form follows function, but that form
and function should work simultaneously to bring about a pure architectural design, where the
United Bank Limited- Quetta
function defines the form and vice versa.
The firm and its members adhere to a positive and honest attitude towards work. Our approach
revolves around a modernist principle formed by a LESS IS MORE design concept, a basic
guideline which creates the foundation of our design criteria.

VISION
Design excellence and problem solving are at the heart of everything we do. We promote creativity with a disciplined
design process that assesses, analyzes and synthesizes a project’s issues and objectives.
Our design philosophy consists of three principles:
Timelessness_ _ architecture transcends fashion and should never lose its appeal. We believe that
good design fashion is truly innovative, highly sensible, yet a source of inspiration to those who
have the pleasure of living with it.
Simplicity_ _ is a dominant theme in execution and design. We believe in simplicity and
minimalism and that form and function should be in synthesis and incorporate innovative ideas in
terms of concept, design and materials. Detailing is deliberately sparse and linear in order to
enhance the spaces within and without. Detailing is in the heart of our work. It has been said that
good detailing should never show the agony it took to produce it, but should appear as if it had not
been detailed at all.
Functionality_ _ in design is not an abstract exercise in combining shapes, forms and materials.
Our design methodology focuses on an inner application of design values following the philosophy
of minimalist spacing that creates rectangularity, proportional equilibrium of scale, texture and
composition and undisguised use of modern materials such as concrete, to create imaginative yet
efficient architectural environments. In addition to aesthetic expression, program requirements,
structure and economy of construction serve as joint determinants of planning and detailing in all
our projects.
