Architecture for us is a discourse between built form and the space around it. We engage ourselves in understanding the user requirement to define the project's vision. The process involves a logical understanding of the physical environment, analyzing the constraints, and socioeconomic structure, and critical analysis of form and space. Our deep understanding and respect for Indian art and architecture, ancient spatial science, and contemporary building technology are very special to our outlook. We perceive the built form should cohesively weave into its context and be an intrinsic fragment of the urban landscape. The architects of the practice have exceptional experience in carrying out work of the kind you appear to have in mind.
