Our international setup, with PAD7 Beirut and PAD10 Kuwait, is backed up with our open setups and team-centric BIM (Building Information Modelling) Cloud technology, to ensure optimal collaboration among different team members.

PADx cultural insight on the milieu it operates in, is documented by the ‘the Kulture Files’, a pamphlet it curates and circulates.
Recently, PADx was awarded as one of the 10 finalist projects for a 2-stage international design competition for KFAS New Headquarters in Kuwait and shortlisted for North Design Union HQ in China. PAD is contributor to the Venice Biennale 2016 ‘Reporting from the Front’.

Our cross-disciplinary practice emerges from a belief that spatial and visual communications operate in unison rather than in mutually exclusive spheres. Our continuous experimentation with multiple perceptual fields weave a culture in the becoming.
