Street furniture designed by ShamsArd design studio which based in Ramalla and consisted of four young Architects; Rami Kasbari; Ghaith T. Hilal; Lina Saleh; & Danna Masad.
ShamsArd is a design studio in Ramallah created by four emerging architects with background and experience in environmentally sustainable architecture and the shared goal of finding creative alternatives design solutions that withhold social and environmental responsibility as a core value.
We recognize that we have an important role and are responsible for the decisions we make as designers and architects in shaping our future, preserving our natural resources and empowering our community. The decision of decorating façades with stone veneer destroys thousands of dunams of wild and indigenously cultivated lands daily. To heat and cool our buildings we have become dependent on the consumption of large amounts of fossil fuel, and we create so much construction waste that it litters our cities and all the wadis and wild areas around it. ShamsArd studio ‘s objective is to find, experiment, play with, test and use building materials and techniques that have a minimal impact to the environment, create a healthy, comfortable and modern space for the client and can return the most benefit to the local economy
