Karm Architecture Lab - KAL is a unique architecture firm specializing in high-performance architecture and energy-efficient design. 7 years after Karim Kafrawi (KAL Principal Architect) and Ahmed Zahran (KarmSolar, KAL CEO) co-founded KarmBuild, we have re-branded with a fresh new logo, identity, and outlook to implement our design philosophy by building harmonious, efficient, and occupant-centric built environments with captivating aesthetics.
Since the beginning of 2021, we have been working closely with award-winning graphic designer Nora Aly on re-imagining the KAL brand and identity to make it reflective of the nature of the firm, team, culture, and solutions offered. We’re proud of the work we’ve done together and excited to share it with our community.
Our purpose is to transform the communities we live in using high-performance architecture to promote user comfort, efficiency, economic viability, and a healthy and socially interactive user experience. We create visually stimulating designs that are inspired by local contextual factors and integrate creative environmental design elements.
We believe that a world undergoing drastic change needs an honest, adaptive, and interactive approach to design where the individual is at the heart of any built environment. For us, the individual’s experience and comfort transcend all other factors in creating places that inspire joy, relaxation, increase focus and productivity, as well as provide intellectual and spiritual regeneration.
To build sustainably requires us to design holistically, and our unique integrated design approach enables us to develop creative strategies that have a firm focus on the future of a healthier built environment.
Our work is justified with its operating performance by having a minimal environmental impact, architectural/environmental integration, improved user experience as well as economically sustainable developments with lowered operating costs and self-sufficiency, all whilst maintaining modern amenities and high-quality living standards, with the occupant at the heart of our designs.
We’re looking forward to the coming phase for KAL. We are dedicated to providing more opportunities and resources to onboard our audience, enthusiasts, and the market on high-performance, human-centric architecture.
Our strategies and solutions have already helped many businesses and homeowners enjoy and benefit from smart, energy-efficient, and aesthetically captivating built environments across Egypt. Awareness and demand for sustainable, local context-driven strategies in architecture has grown significantly over the past period as forward-thinking clients and real estate developers veer away from standard templates to effective human-centric design.
