architecture & design

At MABRX, we see architecture as a living organism and a social media with the ability to reflect and inform, to educate and transform. It is more than the creation of a functional built environment. Designing buildings, inspirational forms and inviting spaces is the best way of creating places that people thrive in.

Our progressive architectural thinking, combined with innovative engineering and efficient project management, paves the way to creating new design solutions where the challenges of the environment, economy, local culture and future aspirations are all well understood and carefully balanced.


We have a rich and varied history of designing mixed use, residential, and commercial buildings, skyscrapers, schools and health facilities in different markets.

Design excellence is central to our thinking and we combine it with an innovative and enquiring approach to meet the more complex agendas of sustainability and modern construction techniques.


Our approach to interior design is simple. It’s about interpreting a client’s needs and optimizing the qualities and opportunities presented by any given space.

We focus on providing high quality solutions where our expertise in brand development, space planning, lighting, material selection and attention to detail is key.

From concept work through to specification and procurement of bespoke and Contract items, we work with public and private developers across a range of hospitality, commercial, mixed use and residential Projects. Integral to our design philosophy is the ability to create environments that maximise flexibility and that are informed by how we live, work and play.

Our Interior Design services includes:

    • Concept and Brand Development
    • Space Planning & Analysis
    • Lighting Design
    • Detail Design
    • Material Selection & Colour Strategy
    • Production of Presentation Materials including Visuals & Sample Boards
    • FF&E Budget Production
    • Production of Outline Specification Information.

SPACE PLANNING & program design

At the very early stages of conceiving any project, we explore all possible varieties of space planning and choose the most efficient, streamlined and flexible models to inform final area programs. A lot of thinking goes into this stage to ensure functional and economical considerations are met.

SUSTAINABLity & environmental responsiveness

Our designs are shaped by the cultural, economic and environmental context the live in. Our holistic design approach addresses the challenges of creating sustainable and environmentally aware buildings with optimized performance with passive and active design measures.


We consider Landscape as a fully integrated design element with any development or project. Our experience is broad ranging; from strategic planning, EIA to detailed design and implementation.

Our landscape team has the creative design skills and specific relevant technical experience in key areas including arid/desert landscapes, irrigation/ passive irrigation, interior/tropical planting design, detailed design and implementation, plant selection/ Contract growing, procurement/implementation and Contract administration.

INTEGRATED multidisciplinary design

Our architects, engineers, building scientists, economists and project managers work hand in hand from the very beginning to transform ideas into buildable realities. Structural and electro-mechanical design teams collaborate with architects in the early stages of design to ensure that the vision is not only inspiring, but practical and economical.


Masterplanning and urban design is the first step in creating attractive liveable environments. Our design philosophy is informed by a passionate interest in place making and the quality of the public realm.

Every site has its own particular brief, setting and set of challenges and each site demands a unique response.

We excel at understanding each development’s setting to help influence and create attractive and positively defined places.

Our experts merge good urban design principles with high quality architecture to create thriving communities and smart cities. 


The future of design will always be inspired by inquisitive and creative human minds. But as technologies advance in an unprecedented pace, machine learning and artificial intelligence offers new tools to explore new horizons in design. We stay on top of our game, and deploy parametric algorithms and applications to explore the unlimited possibilities of adaptive, sensitive and responsive design solutions. 

Using artificial intelligence (AI) software and the computer power of the cloud, generative design enables numerous design options by simply defining their design problem – inputting basic parameters

MABRX is focused on technology transformation that is revolutionizing the way we live, work and relate to one another.  Referred to as the Fourth Industrial revolution, unlike the previous industrial revolutions, technology transformations are now evolving at an exponential pace and disrupting every industry.  It will be transforming entire systems of production, management, and governance. 

MABRX can help clients keep up with this technology transformation and benefit by it. 


Developing Corporate Strategies and Business Plans for clients such as Design Consultancies, PMCM’s, and Real Estate Developers, at any stage of development or transformation.  It covers Strategy development that includes defining targets and actions and implementation plans. 


Mabrx’s governance, risk and compliance (GRC) services help clients deal withthe broad aspects of corporate governance, enterprise risk management, and effective corporate compliance, while offering specialized assistance in key areas such as corporate frameworks, family wealth planning / succession planning, legal entity establishment and other.

We can help organizations identify, remediate, monitor, exploit and manage enterprise risks in addition to coordinating the utilization of people, process and technology to improve GRC effectiveness and help manage costs.


This Advisory service includes Capabilities Building in terms of Organization and Operations.  Mabrx provides professional expertise to review, assess, develop organizational capabilities in the following areas:

A-  Operating Model

That depicts the capabilities required including product/service range and mix in light of current market opportunity and regulatory requirements. The operating model will serve as the business transformation blueprint.

B – Structure

An organizational and positional structure that will serve as the framework of the company to ensure the performance capability to perform its vital tasks and goals.

C-  Job Description Development

D- Business Processes and Workflows

Digital transformation is at the core of pushing business forward. When done properly, it can help businesses achieve sustainable growth and stay ahead of its competition.

As technology is always evolving, it is difficult to know where to start.  Mabrx will break this down to make the process less complex. 

For Design, PMCM and Property Development, initial steps can be taken to implement Digital Transformation in terms of;

    • BIM 3D, 4D, 5D, 6D, 7D and Design Twins
    • PMIS and EDMS systems for paperless project control among all stakeholders
    • Digital scanning to monitor progress
    • ERP and CRM systems

ANALYTICS, AI & Augmented Analytics

Mabrx will help clients to optimize the technologies available within our Fourth Industrial Revolution. 


Augmented analytics is the combination of AI and analytics and is the latest innovation in data analytics.  Data analysis has evolved to having smart  applications that provide actionable insights for decision-making in just a few clicks, thanks to AI. Augmenting by definition means making something greater in strength or value.


Mabrx can help clients to internalize data-driven decision-making while enabling everyone in the organization to easily deal with data. This means AI helps in democratizing data across the enterprise. 


The role of a Program/Project Management Office has proven to be valuable in delivering programs and projects using best in class standards.  Design Consultancies, PMCM Consultancies and Real Estate Development companies may all benefit from having an internal PMO to help deliver projects, and EPMO’s to help the Enterprise manage strategy and change in addition to the PMO functions.


Mabrx may assist clients in designing, establishing and implementing its PMO through a custom program of Capability Building.

Public-Private Partnerships (PPP)

A Public–private partnership (PPP, or P3) is commonly used when countries wish to privatize industry or assets.

Private companies require expertise to respond to such arrangements and Mabrx can assist in advising technically in terms of cost, schedule, risk management and other.


Smart contracts are simply programs stored on a blockchain that run when predetermined conditions are met.  They typically are used to automate the execution of an agreement so that all participants can be immediately certain of the outcome, without any intermediary’s involvement or time loss. They can also automate a workflow, triggering the next action when conditions are met.


Mabrx is advancing into this technology, as there are numerous potential applications in the Design, PMCM, and Property Development industry.


Mabrx can evaluate the feasibility of introducing and implementing  Smart Contracts in a client’s business model.
