My work responds to the needs and resources of the Client. The buildings and interiors I design come from a detailed understanding of the functions they must fulfil, the conditions they have to provide for and the materials from which they are to be constructed. This understanding is then directly translated into form and detail.

My goal is to design buildings and environments that work, inspire people and transform Lives. Through careful evaluation of relevant opportunities, inspired ideas will drive a good design to something that is extraordinary, challenging, and completely unique.

I approach every design like the first one with freshness and no overhangs .The passion to do good design overrides any doubts and difficulties. In my designs I try to be innovative; they often surprise but are I try to precisely tune it to the requirements of the client.

With each project I learn more about creating forms and places, serving processes and people, and minimising energy use in providing comfortable and healthy environments. My objective is to search for optimal solutions to create a built environment that uses the planet's resources carefully. The idea is to generate designs which are functional, economic and elegant.

Having graduated from the SPA New Delhi my career started with winning 2 prestigious architectural competitions of the early 90's, viz. Dr B.R. Ambedkar University at Lucknow and VanijyaKunj in Gurgaon. Thereafter, since 1990, I have worked on various design and development projects ranging from Industrial, Residential, Interiors and as a Consultant to Banks and large Indian Public Financial Institutions.

I have been actively involved in Green Buildings and Low Cost Technologies. My association with The Laurie Baker Building Centre and with my vast experience has translated into many GreenBuildings.

I am registered with the Council of Architecture, an Associate Member of The Indian Institute of Architects (IIA)and a Fellow of The Indian Institute of Valuers.
