Landscape is a cohesive practice that includes Architecture, Interiors, Engineering, Construction, and Material sourcing all under one roof (without outsourcing).
Services offered under our design consultancy include schematic design, layouts, 2D sections and elevations, key 3D views/sketches, structural, construction, mechanical, electrical and plumbing drawings, BOQ with cost analysis, material and furniture selection, contractor assessment, top supervision, project management, and remote off-site supervision and design critique of environment and ambience.
The cost of design depends on the size and type of project. Once we’ve studied your brief, we’ll put together an estimate.
Yes. If required, our in-house construction team can undertake the build job, covering everything from architectural development and engineering up to interior fit-outs – as per agreed BOQs (Bill of Quantities). We also provide a complete construction project management service. Please see our Construction Overview page and Project Management schedule for more information.
Turnkey is the term used to refer to the complete design and build of a project. It covers architectural design and layout, engineering (civil, structural, electrical and plumbing), plot maintenance, short-listing of vendors, supervision, monitoring from start to finish (end to end), management and handling of material purchases. It also involves site supervision, quality assurance of work being produced in line with the scope of design, and set budgets based on set timelines.
Yes. As part of our complete one-stop solution, our designers and skilled team of craftsmen can create a range of bespoke furniture as a perfect finishing touch to your project.
Detailed electrical design layouts, including power schematics, are produced by our in-house team of electrical engineers for your reassurance. These include provisions for lighting, power, air conditioning, Distribution Boards (DBs), camera, and fire alarms based on load design for a project. Please see our Engineering page for more details. We also offer services related to solar power, alternate energy solutions, and holistic automation of homes/commercial spaces.

Yes. If you want us to handle everything, from design and construction, to project management and fit out, we will.
Yes. As well as our work in Karachi, we have worked with several international clients, across the Middle East and Europe.
We use 3D imaging so you can see what the finished project will look like before we start. But we think you’ll find the finished product is even better than the virtual design!
16) I have ideas for the design of my home but don’t know how to put them together – how can you help?
Yes. If you have a clear idea of what you want, we’ll work closely with you to make your ideas a reality. We use devices including mood boards to help us create designs that are in harmony with your vision.
Experienced interior architects, like Landscape, understand how space can be used most effectively. Using an interior designer is recommended if you are looking for a well-designed, functional and aesthetically pleasing environment.
At Landscape, we believe education is what our society needs the most. With education, our people can stand free and strong.
We put environmental and social sustainability at the heart of designs. By educating people regarding energy efficiency, resource efficiency, and sustainable building practices, we can help to make a better world around us.
We can help our country by building monumental structures that are remarkable and unique. These structures can become part of our country’s identity, as well as attracting tourists and architecture students. We want to transform the skyline of Karachi by adding to it an array of skyscrapers and other beautiful structures that this metropolis deserves.
Green or sustainable architecture is the modern concept of designing structures that are more resource and energy efficient and are better for wellbeing and the environment. There can also be a knock-on benefit of reduced running costs; for example, if a building is efficiently insulated, it requires less power to heat or cool.
The idea emerged following the rapid depletion and ultimate extinction of several vital resources over the past decades. This misuse, waste, and limited availability has pushed scientists and designers to come up with products and ideas which ensure that our actions and decisions today do not inhibit the opportunity of future generations.
21) Our educational institute needs to run classes during the day. Can you work in different shifts to suit our business needs?
In such conditions, fit-out projects can be scheduled to suit your needs. Our team works on day and night shifts depending on the project requirements.
Good design creates an environment that is interesting, comfortable and exudes energy. We believe that for an educational institution, an inspiring design is the key to create an excellent learning environment.
