DISCOVER WHAT DRIVES OUR PEOPLE
“With bs;bp I am part of a team of various professionals to work with, also very nice people with their own strengths and weaknesses. I joined bs;bp because I wanted to see my designs built in a short term, and it happened.“

Rabia is lead designer on bs;bp Interior Design projects and specialised in coworking and office brands. She also co-curates content for bs;bp’s The Future Of Work panel series, works on pitches and writes for our blog.
Her work as an architect started in various offices in Pakistan and New York from residential design to large scale buildings.
When Rabia moved to New York she diverged into rooftop architecture/landscape design and also on apartments and school architecture. After completing her Masters in Industrial Design she opted for Experience Design, which covers a user-centric journey through any space, employing the physiological and visceral sense.
“Nothing is impossible.”

WHAT DO I ENJOY MOST IN MY WORK?
During the collaborative process and while working with a good team. Also, when we present the first ideas to the client, to see their reaction.
DO I PERFORM WELL UNDER PRESSURE?
Pretty well. However, a very tight deadline can be challenging for a project. I believe the thought process and alignment need time. I advise clients to build in time for discovery. This helps them reflect as they are taken on a designer’s journey and begin to see their space’s full potential.

“I have a growing interest in sustainability and circular materials and their use. Particularly, the aesthetics that come with using these materials from the beginning of a project.”

This project shows that a very small budget can go a long way. My role was advisory and design for interior finishes.
