About LAB

LAB–abbreviation for Local Architecture Bureau–thrives on diverse projects, embracing Medium to Large Scale designs across Public, Commercial, and Private sectors. Our philosophy is rooted in local perspectives, explored and expressed experimentally as a Laboratory. We create new possibilities and typologies based on the fusion of functions and aesthetics. LAB engages in a comprehensive process, from think-tank sessions and idea development to research-based studies and realisation.
