Our Approach

At Afniah, since its establishment in 2003, we have been keen to preserve the originality of architecture and develop it with the concepts of the present, without giving up both. Indeed, it must be recognized that local architecture emerges from interaction between regional heritage and architecture applications in general on several levels. This definition may not apply to what we would like to achieve in the Afniah, but it is the path which we aim to grow our design principles.

To identify the most prominent features of local architecture, we must first look more broadly before identifying its particulars and features. Local architecture should be concerned with a range of factors that influence the overall process, which results from constants and variables. Local architecture by definition interacts with a wide range of factors at various levels, including the social, economical, as well as environmental agents and building materials used and produced locally, which interact directly with climatic factors developed over long periods of time. Within the general context that defines the relationship between heritage that underlies local architecture as a model and the dominant architectural styles. We have to say that what we were facing in our professional work would not have gone beyond this conflict, but we were looking for a “code” that would end this isolation, an end at the professional level, not just ideas. This is where the difficulty lies in adopting a trend that combines extremes.
