The Origins Story

Having lived and worked extensively abroad in the UK, I was deeply passionate about promoting human-centered design in Pakistan. This brought me to Pakistan in 2000 and eventually led to the founding of Cordoba in Lahore in 2019.

Inspiration for the name ‘Cordoba’ comes from the city of Cordoba located in the south of Spain. At its pinnacle during the Middle Ages, Cordoba was a highly civilized society, a place of beautiful architecture and the most celebrated place of learning in the world which lead to the renaissance in Europe. And it represented harmony.

Design too is about creating harmony by finding the right balance between constraints and opportunities and coming up with appropriate solutions that improve the human condition. As a firm, Cordoba represents that ideal.
