Create places that enhance the human experience. On this premise, I founded Map Architects with the aim of designing Sustainable buildings in India. The subsequent years have been a roller-coaster of highs and lows, success, and failures. But with every new project that we design be it Commercial or Residential, large or small scale , I feel blessed to be able to contribute and help shape the new skyline of the developing cities in India.
I strongly believe that built forms have the power to transform, connect and inspire people all over the world. But what intrigues me more are the structures which are built in our lands by our own people sourcing local materials understanding the local norms, be it Vaastu or regional weather conditions. I am indifferent to what the world considers Sustainable or provides rating for. A building which breathes and connects one to its surrounds is what I value the most. Join me if you have similar aspirations to build the nation and contribute to its infrastructural development.
In these years we have associated on projects of all scales, Residential, Commercial & Retail. My prior mainstream MNC experience gives me an understanding of large campuses, what works and what doesn't. It allows me to stay committed to delivering high quality projects and innovative design solutions. I rely on those learnings to everyday improve and channelize myself to be a better professional and create a business that makes a difference.
We (Map Architects) are passionate about great architecture and all things sustainable. Sustainability, Innovation, and Craftmanship are most essential ingredients of our practice.
