Architecture and interior design is more than just a grand gesture. A well designed space can help a company increase revenue, decrease operational costs and boost employee’s morale, among other benefits. Financial institutions world over are aware of the magic of design and hence are always careful in the selection of architects and/or interior designers for their corporate buildings. In this specific case of Standard Chartered Bank corporate interiors, the dynamic duo of Najmi Bilgrami come together.

One of their foremost projects as a collaboration team, it would have been hard to go wrong with the two ace architects of Pakistan; Misbah Najmi (late) and Akeel Bilgrami but it goes without saying that the infusion of a breath of fresh air with the design minimalism philosophy, chic and understated look definitely goes to the off springs of both the architects who are an integral part of the collaboration. It is almost as if nothing could go wrong with this highly productive team of experience and youthful energy. Yet the design outcome of the space is no frivolous, hi-end adventure but is a very sophisticated, cultured and chic atmosphere created for the high profile financial institute.
