History

Design Group Practice (DGP) is a collaborative initiative that was first instituted as a partnership in 1984 by Architects Samar Ali Khan and Ali Asghar Khan. In 1990, we received our first major commissions in the form of apartment buildings in Islamabad and Karachi. This was the beginning of what we can now proudly claim as one of the leading architectural practices in Pakistan. With offices now present and established in both Karachi and Islamabad, we are able to provide logistical support and the convenience of proximity that few others firms can. Our diverse portfolio of work includes various building typologies such as the following:

  • Over 300 residential projects
  • Interior design projects i.e. restaurants, corporate offices, shops and showrooms
  • Luxury apartment complexes / buildings
  • Urban Planning initiatives
  • Hotels & Hospitality
  • Vacation Homes, Beach Huts and Guest Houses
  • Health Institutions and Hospitals
  • Industrial Buildings and Factories
  • Educational Facilities
  • Social institutions and other charitable initiatives

At DGP, we have now broadened our services beyond design consultancy to include: DGP + Construction Management, DGP + Project Development and DGP + Woodworks with numerous other enterprising initiatives in the pipeline. All these services are coordinated to create a highly customized, one stop solution from visualization to design and execution, catering to all the preferences of our clients.
