MEET THE TEAM
WHAT WE BELIEVE
We strongly believe a good design can elevate the quality of life. Our projects are an end result of a collaborative effort from a myriad group of people from difference backgrounds across the world. The advantage we have is that our practice is a mélange of talent: architects, fashion designers, chemical engineers, product designers, sociologist, horticulturist, etc who bring with them the richness of knowledge and distinct perspectives and experiences. The perfect alchemy between strikingly different talents and refreshing enthusiasm underlines our success story. As a practice with insane optimism, we hope for a better tomorrow and strive to play our part – big or small – in the cultural and global context. Architectural expressions are distilled to capture the spiritual essence of the ‘place.’ The architectural designs hinge, in principle, on the traditional climatic sensibilities. The aim is to promote sustainable and eco-architecture. The architecture and interiors are layered with inspiration from a myriad of cultural and climatic nuances of its context – and achieved by integrating landscape and water features, while simultaneously blurring the distinction between the interior and exterior. The projects, thus, display sensitivity to the inherent beauty of natural materials expressed through clarity in construction, immaculate attention to detail and elemental architectural expression. Another key area of strength is Virtual Reality visualisation, using VR tools to render the designs and make them highly immersive.
