The residence sits in an urban fabric where the immediate context is a busy street and a lack of foliage for the house to respond to. The house is designed on a plot measuring 45’x90’, located in a typical Indian neighbourhood flanking the busy street. The dense residential fabric of the neighbourhood, proximity of the neighbours and the busy street in front prompted the conception of an introverted building. Diagrammatically, the program of the house is laid out in the form an ‘H-shaped plan’ that wraps around a courtyard such that each arm of the ‘H’ flanks the courtyard. The open to sky courtyard, a highly sustainable element, not only becomes the point of interest and activity within the house, but also represents the ‘outside’ within the introverted house. The pergolas help shade the double height space and cut the glare, while the green wall helps in reducing the heat. The court is an oasis not just for light but for fresh air as well, where hot air escapes and fresh air comes through. Acting as a light well, the court enables the user to have a macro oasis within the house. The interiority of the house is designed to revolve around the experience of the garden, similar to that of a conventional courtyard/thotti house.

Good interior design should be accessible to all in order to create vibrant and happy spaces. Workplace Design as a concept is constantly and consistently evolving with the onset of the Start-up and dot com era. There is a paradigm shift in the composition of workplaces, especially for the younger generation with regards to the spaces representing ideology, social status, work ethic and lifestyle choices. Designed for this changing concept of workspaces, is a collaborative co-working space in South Delhi, the ‘JD office.’ Built on a double format workspace with an area of 550 sq.ft, the space is designed to accommodate several startups and small companies, accommodating their varying needs. The client brief called for a double format, to ensure that multiple, individual firms could occupy this workspace on lease. The major design challenge was to conceive a place that is quirky and youthful, while ensuring comprehensive functionality for startups and digital setups.

Taking a cue from the old city streets of Mathura city in India where this project is located, this 800 room students’ hostel creates organic spaces.
Designed in 4 level high, 5 linear blocks, the built spaces snake across a wedge shaped site twisting and turning along their length. Sitting adjacent to repetitive hostel blocks on the east and west these new hostels within a large university campus create individual spaces within a discernible identity in each part of the layout.

Conceived as a comfort-oriented restaurant, with classic aesthetics and relaxed ambience, Flavours’n’spice has been designed in a modern contemporary style for a gymkhana (sports club) in Mumbai. With a client brief of a day and night, fine dining restaurant to accommodate 110 people along with sufficient private and group dining spaces for all age groups, the creation of a warm and relaxed atmosphere was of utmost importance to enhance the dining experience of the patrons. The overall design intent therefore attempts to create a timeless design using an organic approach that brings the nature outside into the indoors. An elegant, earthy colour palette is used in the interiors to further augment the warm, relaxed and cosy aesthetic that is typically seen in old English Restaurants, while the décor is inherently contemporary Indian in style.

The location of site with its magnificent views of the Udaigiri hills & the mighty Brahamaputra river has played a major role in the designing of this house. The site is contoured, with the top most level perched upto the height of 7m from the approach road level. This height facilitated an unobstructed view of the river on the NW & the hills on the SE side. The land cutting for the ramp, servant’s quarter & the party hall has been used to fill the steep slope on the NW side resulting to a step terrace. This terrace is used by the lady of the house to enjoy her hobby of gardening. A cantilever deck juts out over this terrace. This deck is part of the outdoor space of the party hall that was carved out below the main house. The main bungalow is positioned on the flat portion of the topmost level of the contour.
