The Beginning of it all…

The story of SCALE begins where print media falters. In a market that has become conservative in its spending on advertisement and marketing, SCALE starts a digital adventure.

SCALE is the fruit of a passion for content that inspires and a love for designs that delight. It was born out of an architects’ passion to curate the best of designs from around the world while focusing on the noteworthy architectural projects in Qatar.
