Raza Zahid Atelier
Architecture . Interiors . Product Design
Raza Zahid Atelier is a Lahore based design house specializing in Architecture, Interiors and Product Design. Founded in 2009 by Raza Zahid, the office provides a platform for research and invention, where every idea is applied and tested across multiple scales in an attempt to blur the boundaries between architecture, interior and product design.
The design ideology of the office is to create unique, pragmatic and inspiring spaces and objects that are the result of our understanding of, and response to, the complexities of our lives. RZA begins each project without any preconceived styles, by questioning the status quo, by challenging conventions and predefined standards, and by developing a thorough understanding of the various elements and stakeholders that influence the design process. RZA believes in treating every design challenge as an opportunity to experiment and discover, by adopting new technologies, reinterpreting the use of local crafts and materials and creating spaces and products that bring joy to its users.
RZA is also committed to the promotion and practice of ethical and sustainable design. All projects conceived and produced at RZA are based on certain ethical design practices as well as ideologies regarding social and ecological sustainability, which promote original design, fair wages, use of environmentally friendly materials etc.
Over the years, the office has won a number of national and international awards and has displayed the work in various galleries and exhibitions in major cities in Pakistan.
