Landscape with Animals




My wife and I, as Overseas Pakistanis, had always dreamed of owning a house in Islamabad, where we grew up as children. Despite living abroad, we maintained a strong connection to the city through regular visits and close relatives residing there. However, the reality of building a house as Overseas Pakistanis seemed challenging, and we had heard stories of others facing difficulties in fulfilling such a dream. Luckily, we were introduced to Montage Design Build by a family member, and our journey towards realizing our dream began. Our initial contact with Montage Design Build was with Ms. Sadia Hayat, an architect, who played a crucial role in our project. During our discussions in December 2019, Ms. Hayat shared the unique concept of "Boutique homes" and how they differentiated themselves from other players in the construction industry in Islamabad. She not only possessed technical expertise but also had extensive experience in similar projects, which gave us confidence in her abilities. The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020 brought unforeseen challenges, including travel restrictions that prevented us from being physically present during the construction process. However, Ms. Hayat adapted swiftly to the situation, conducting virtual meetings and utilizing technology to ensure our project progressed smoothly. We were amazed at her ability to understand our ideas and transform them into a specific design and layout, demonstrating her attention to detail and commitment to excellence. Throughout the construction journey, Ms. Hayat and her team maintained excellent communication and provided regular updates, including videos and photos of the site's progress. Despite the obstacles presented by the pandemic, we were impressed by the seamless coordination and collaboration between Montage Design Build and us as the owners. Ms. Hayat's expertise extended beyond architectural aspects, as she also guided us in selecting fittings, fixtures, and furnishings, making the entire process comprehensive and hassle-free. We are immensely grateful to Ms. Sadia Hayat, Qaisar Mustafa, and the entire team at Montage Design Build for their unwavering dedication and commitment to delivering our dream home in Islamabad. Their professionalism, attention to detail, and ability to adapt to challenging circumstances were commendable. Thanks to their expertise and support, we were able to navigate the construction process smoothly and create a home that exceeded our expectations.
