Our Design Process
Our immediate environment is the space that we subconsciously create and inhabit. There is a certain romanticism to our work, a narrative quality that leads the viewer into varied experiences, and we enjoy creating work which references the old,has a hint of nostalgia while being wholly innovative. Living in a hill state, our architecture is climate sensitive and the relationship between built form and the external environment constant. The design philosophy stresses on a detailed pre-design study of the site including the climatic conditions, socio-cultural aspects, available local skills and crafts, a strong focus on material research and an assessment of the client’s requirements.

I define myself as a determined, hardworking,easy going and a well scheduled person, making a checklist of things need to be done and focused on.
My inspiration of Architecture and design is through art and my desire to scribble, draw, paint, and even demolish to shape my imaginative sphere into a reality.
