Thesis Title: 

Celebrating Local Craft Through Modern Interiors

Location: Emerald Royal Residency, Tariq Road, Karachi, Pakistan
Area: 6784 Sq.ft.


This thesis is a retail design project entitled for Behbud Boutique; an organisation destined to promote skills of the underprivileged women of the society. Therefore, the concept for the retail outlet; is to define an experience of celebrating local craft through modern interiors, showcasing a live display of our beautiful handcraft and artisan skills. The design for this outlet is inspired by our traditional Pakistani textile, patchwork technique called: ‘Ralli’ that envelope both culture and modernity with an overall raw, industrial, ethnic, interior scheme.

However, the approach to design not only fulfils the idea of a retail outlet but it also aims to educate people through craft history and generates further income through an addition of Behbud Café.
