Badran Design Studio is an innovative architecture and urban
design practice. Established in 2008 in by Jamal Badran, the studio is run
as a family business based in Amman. Jordan.
Inspired by the late artist J. Badran and intrigued by the
creativity of the visionary renowned architect, Dr. Rasem Badran, the office
merges and incarnates the legacy of three generations of art and architecture,
blended to create a contemporary platform for innovative design.
The studio’s philosophy is built on the belief of promoting
genuine dialogue between the built environment and its physical and cultural
context. Such dialogue establishes the solid basis of interaction between the
old rich and vernacular character in order to open up possibilities for fresh
vision that addresses new needs. For us, our philosophy is about a continuous
dialogue between theory and practice acquiring all dimensions in the built
environment whether natural, climatic or cultural.
Our design approach, theoretical narrative and signification
provide us with a solid and grounded basis for a timelessness architecture,
where forms, patterns, colors, textures and scents shape a place identity. We
view architecture as a world of possibilities. We don't believe in one binding
solution that can be universally applied anywhere and anytime. Each project is
envisioned as a sole opportunity that invites us to explore its own attributes
that pertain to its physical and cultural uniqueness.
For us, our designs are products of a lengthy evolution
process. We start by creating vision through extensive research and analysis
for the site. We assess diversified ideas in response to challenges through
innovative thinking and experimentation, pushing forward the boundaries of
controversy in our design thinking.
The firm is specialized in the design of
residential, retail, cultural, resort, commercial, and hospitality projects.
