Denim Plant For Artistic Milliners - Karachi, Pakistan
Artistic Milliners is the first LEED certified building ever to be conceived in Pakistan. AM is a high quality large scale denim fabric and garment manufacturer and is the only factory to have an in-house denim testing laboratory.
The location of the site is in a heavily industrial zone in Karachi with an extent of 7 Acres (28,300 sq.m.). The design had many challenges and prerequisites from the client.
The layout is in an L-shaped building whereby the views are of a mini golf course which is the focus of the entrance. Visitors and executive staff reach the first floor through a ramped driveway and the minor staff and workers are segregated through a service access, this is due to the increased tension and hostility between the classes and tribal fights that occur in the region.
The construction phase required our attention for two and a half years and the project received the LEED GOLD certification at the successful completion of the project.
