  • WHAT MADE YOU CHOOSE ARCHITECTURE ?

It was most evolving industry at that time. This is the place where you can build what you dream of, this point fascinated me.

  • WHAT IS YOUR DESIGN PHILOSOPHY?

Practical solutions for beautiful people.

  • WHAT IS THE MANTRA THAT YOU'VE RELIED ON IN BALANCING FUNCTION WITH AESTHETICS?

Designs should be aesthetically pleasing also functional, sustainable. Now in Mumbai, places are shrunk in order to enhance surroundings. So in these kinds, every corner has to be used at its fullest. Example, while designing any place traffic area won’t be compromised or the standards will be maintained according to anthropometry. Every small piece will have a story and reason behind its design.

Discipline and consistency are the most important skills which not only designers or professional should have but everyone can test themselves by getting used to it. These things have helped me stay strong throughout in this market.
