INK Architects' portfolio includes 35 built large-scale projects, including residential complexes, business centers, and sports complexes. More are being constructed nowadays both in Kazakhstan and abroad.
The priority task of the INK architects team is to create active, functionally saturated spaces. Bespoke and modern architectural solutions are developed for each project individually. We aspire to create architecture that changes the communities, mentality, and appearance of cities. With each project, our team strives to set a new bar for human-oriented design, which not only enlivens spaces but also creates value.
We design buildings of any type and level of complexity:
- Residential and mixed-use complexes;
- Public buildings
- Business-centers, office and commercial spaces;
- Villas, townhouses and cottages;
- Sports complexes;
- Parks, recreation places, squares;
Pre-design analysis is needed to identify site advantages and limitations and the impact that the project will have on the city. For the success of architectural and urban planning projects, it is necessary to develop an integrated scheme based on an analysis of the surrounding context, sustainability, and feasibility. Thus, our team considers variables such as: transport networks, pedestrian connections, climate, cultural and social context, existing infrastructure, site history, and city planning documents.
Based on the pre-design studies, the team creates multiple development options with different functions and forms. Those prototypes could be used for brief-forming, further financial calculations, stakeholder meetings, and etc. But most importantly, pre-design studies will help to avoid mistakes and collisions in the following design stages.
Concept design stage responds to the client's brief. Our team of architects ensures that the form and feel of the project is in line with client's vision and budget or provide alternative solutions, based on INK Architect's deep understanding of the market, the economy, and correct calculations according to regulatory requirements.
Our team of architects and general planners develop the documentation that contains site analysis, layout options, facade solutions, and NET area calculations.
Schematic design is the next development stage of a project that details concept design according to regulations and the client's vision. During this phase, the set of required documentation is submitted to authorities for approval. It is necessary to commence the technical design stage.
The documentation package includes elaborated and detailed diagrams, drawings, and visualizations that reflect site plan arrangements, and structural, and facade details of the building following the client's brief and regulatory requirements. Also, plan layouts and areas calculations are updated and detailed according to the customer's economic model.
