What determined your passion for design? Tell us about the moment when you decided this is the way to go.
I came to know about architecture from my father since childhood. He used to work as a civil engineer and have a quality of keen observation. I had seen him solving some transport problems and other stuffs with simpler solutions. As I grown up I used to visit some of the places and evolved a creative perspective on alignment of spaces and importance of decluttering in public buildings. Architecture could definitely make life more better and I decided it as my pursuit of life.

I used to do small scale residential and commercial projects.

What field of design are you most interested in?
Urban design and hospitality projects.

What is your favorite book/magazine on design? How about your favorite site?
Monologues of different architects from ELcroquis and The Local project for inspiration and Archdaily for daily updates.

What is your Signature Style?
Our signature style is not to have one in the first place. Different projects need different approach. Climatic response and livable qualities are the key values we uphold.

What inspires you to thrive in this industry? Which piece of artchitecture inspires you the most.
Tropical Modernism and Parametric architecture are the most inspiring these days. The thought of our contributions to these styles inspires us to thrive in this industry.

From your point of view, is design an art or a science?
Its a combination of both. The theoretical exploration to get a good art is what we do.

If you had no limits (money, resources), what would you create?
A sustainable co living space with much balance on socio-economical-cultural aspects of life.
