Philosophy & Approach
Our cosmos consists of two components built and un-built, solid and void, body and soul which are contradictory yet complementary, opposite yet counterparts. It is the quality of un-built which we experience, in which one lives , breathe and do activities of life. In this sense, it becomes responsibility of built to define and shape up un-built. Our practice tries to address on this inherent spatiality of built environment. Void / Shunya has been very intricately explained in mythological text.
Brahman is life, Brahman is joy, Brahman is the void Joy, verily, that is the same as the void The void, verily is the same as joy. Chhandogaya Upanishad
Our architecture is not trend driven, it does not corroborate any particular language or period of architecture or “ism”. Instead it is free of pre-conceived notions and derives its language and character from site, climate, material which can traverse the scale of time and can be felt fresh, evergreen, contemporary and timeless in years to come. It explores materials and structure system, understanding their metaphysical meaning which is capable of changing the spatiality of space.
