Even as a relatively young architectural practice of just over five years since Killa Design were established, we have designed and constructed a number of projects that have made a tangible difference to the architectural and construction landscape of the Middle East and wider region.
Projects such as the Museum of the Future, Office of the Future and The Address Beach Resort have pushed the boundaries of design and sought out new and innovative ways of approaching age-old architectural problems. Our core creative mission is to approach design from first principles, to not be hampered by the way that things have been done in the past but rather to consider each project as a new and unique set of challenges that require innovative and unique design solutions. We believe in every project lies an opportunity to create lasting value and a responsibility to positively influence our cities.
As a firm, we encourage our clients to work with us during the project design and we often challenge areas of an initial brief with a view to add value. We re-define design and construction methodologies that are challenging but rewarding and that ultimately deliver the highest quality of the built environment and for the end-user. Our design approach is defined by an intentional exploration to determine the most applicable solution, which inherently demands that our clients, our consultants, our collaborators and ourselves to work outside our normal comfort zone to reach a higher standard of building design. We believe that we have an ethical responsibility to wield the material and human labour made available to us with the greatest possible respect for the environmental, social and cultural context.
While many firms are driven solely by commercial interests, our primary goal is to support projects that call for unique and innovative solutions, that offer new possibilities for design and that resonate with our core values. These core values are to support sustainability, contextual sensitivity and timeless design. We believe that success can be defined by holding true to what we value in architecture and that our firm will be recognised for its commitment to these higher goals by being given the opportunity to develop new projects in the future.
We have achieved the design and construction of projects that meet these core principles while maintaining an office environment that is open, diverse, collaborative, and highly creative. Our team is made up of a dynamic group of individuals that seek out innovative ways of generating architectural design solutions. Our staff are made up of a new generation of designers who make use of the latest computational tools and techniques to help inform the design process and yet still have a respect for elemental principles behind good quality design.
