Tensile fabric architecture is a blend of both science and art. It’s a collaborative process with our clients with an end result of creating something beautiful and buildable. Our goal is to realise your vision. Creativity is the driving force behind what we do. We believe that if you can imagine it, we can design, manufacture and build it. With origins in architecture, product design and construction management, we are fully equipped to take on the most complicated projects.
Nature is unpredictable. To deal with that fact, all of our structures are engineered to perform under any condition. If you have ever flown a kite or been sailing, you will have felt the power of wind. Those forces, along with the loads imposed by snow when applied to tensile fabric architecture require complex thought and specialist expertise.
Behind every project is a world class team of people. Their job is to free you up to focus on what’s important. From the moment a contract is awarded and before, we assemble a team of specialists whose job is to take the design brief and see it through to practical completion. Supervised by a dedicated Project Manager, every step in the process is thoughtfully considered with great attention to detail.

Getting it right the first time saves everyone time and money. Every detail is meticulously considered. In our 2,000 m2 of production space, we use the latest technology to test, cut, weld and sew fabric panels into inspiring structures that perform.
We are experts in designing thoughtful and elegant systems manufactured with steel, aluminium or even wood. With over 10 years experience designing fabric structures, we are fully equipped to understand what is required to support your structure. Our designers focus on making structural suggestions that optimise efficiency, while maintaining the look of your structure. Every project is unique and requires an expert’s eye for detail.

We like a challenge. Critical to the success of a project is the skill and coordination of Site Operatives whose job is to install structures in some of the most challenging locations all over the world. From road closures to accommodate multi-crane lifts to confined internal courtyards with working net platforms – whatever the method, our team are fully equipped to ensure a safe installation and thorough handover.
Our structures ‘come to life’ at night. The translucency and reflective nature of the materials we use make them the perfect canvas for architectural lighting. The architectural lighting of both internal and external tensile fabric structures and ETFE systems was such a growing part of our business, we set up a specialised department called Architen Lighting. Our innate understanding of tensile forms allows us to enhance and enliven structures with lighting.

Protecting your investment and offering you peace of mind is important to us. That’s why we have a dedicated team to look after our structures all over Pakistan. Just about everything today is maintained – from cars, to buildings, to fabric structures and ETFE systems. In order to maximise the lifespan of your structure, we recommend a maintenance plan.
