IDEOLOGY

-  A small firm focusing on a design based practice. The key factors informing the design are ‘site and its context’ as well as the ‘program’. Each project with a fresh approach in exploring its potential. Understanding and debating the program which helps in expanding it beyond the requirements of the client. Project starts with ‘diagramming’ which is the most important process of generating the idea for the given program. A series of doodles, schematic massing models and sketches are made to generate a multiple   diagrams which are then translated to scaled schematic drawings and model. Developing the design by working simultaneously on drawings, physical models and 3d views. The design process is then a search for an ‘appropriate contemporary expression’ in direct response   to the particular context and program rather than a generalized solution. The articulation and detailing is also done in a way so as to enhance the inherent nature of the   ‘expression’ further.
