The firm actively finds solutions to save energy and promote green building solutions. They use renewable energy, such as solar energy, to reduce energy bills and carbon emissions. Design wise, they utilize natural ventilation and materials that feature a high level of insulation for thermal comfort.
Architecture Nepal has pioneered the concept of community-centered design, placing great an emphasis on local insights and collaboration. Reaching out to their local community, their team has been actively involved in forums, debates and in various ways of educating not just the urban population, but also the rural. They also hold workshops and provide awards dedicated to youngsters in order to help cultivate their talent in design and architecture.
The firm was also one of the first to introduce the concept of participative design, opening up its process to local citizens in order to design projects that are inspired by direct involvement. By listening and integrating the perspectives of local communities into their designs, they have been able to create agile, efficient and high-quality designs that combine aesthetic values, efficient management and sustainability.
Reaching New Heights
Since their inception, Architecture Nepal has been constantly pushing boundaries and exploring new methods to create buildings of the future. They have established a knack for seeing buildings for what they can become, not just what they already are.

Committed to quality and excellence, the firm has been consistently producing projects that represent the pinnacle of their craft, providing lasting legacies for society in the form of fascinating, awe-inspiring landmarks.
The Role of Technology
In order to remain at the top of their game, Architecture Nepal consistently invest in the most cutting-edge computer aided design and architecture software, 3D printing technology, photogrammetry and building information modeling. This allows them to visualize their designs and predict potential issues while creating virtual models of projects, thus limiting the expenditure of both time and money.
The firm also uses drone mapping technology to assess the impacts of their proposed plans, and additionally, to anticipate unforeseen risks which can be avoided in the early stages of the design process. Real-time simulations also allow them to closely replicate the look and feel of the finished building, helping to identify potential problems early in the design process and get to the optimal solution faster.
The projects undertaken by Architecture Nepal are as diverse and varied as their clients. As a consequence, each design is unique, taking into consideration the client’s own objectives, accessible resources and available technology.
