Mak architects was founded in November 2017 by Mohammed Ahmed Khan. Architect (IVSAA, 2000)
After that I moved to Australia and did a Diploma in Creative Photography for one semester and a Masters In Electronic Arts for three semesters. After coming back to Pakistan in 2004: I worked at IVSAA with the re-planning committee and simultaneously did animations on a freelance basis.
In 2006 I Joined DGP [Design Group Practice] and worked as architect on residential project. In 2009 moved to the corporate side of architecture and worked for Pizza Hut Pakistan; and designed their local and international stores as well. From there I moved to Aga Khan University and was exposed to large scale master planning and architectural projects.
In 2012 -2013 I was in Oxford – England, to support my wife’s sabbatical; so she did her PHD while I took care of the children.
After returning I worked in OCL [Osmani Company and LTD] as head of the architecture department; designing high rise buildings and mega projects, before moving to Khaadi for 3 years as senior manager interior design.
In 2017 November that ended; and I started my consultancy with SA as design associate: my story starts now.
