Ayaz & Zameer Basrai

Co-founders of The Busride Design Studio

AB: B.Des, National Institute of Design

ZB: B.Arch, CEPT, SMArchS, MIT

Zameer is an alumnus of MIT, Ayaz studied at the National Institute of Design in Ahmedabad, but it probably hasn’t hurt that they also come from a family of design people. Their father is an architect, as is Zameer’s wife, Sagarika. Ayaz’s wife ,Tarangini, is an industrial designer.

So family conversations typically revolve around design and architecture. "And our mother is a trousseau packer, so she is also always asking us ‘How is this, and do you like that?’" says Zameer.

The brothers, however, make for ideal sparring partners. "The creative friction always leads to something better, which is very rare," says Ayaz. They’ve even found a way to merge their disciplines.

So Zameer tends to have design inputs, and Ayaz offers pointers on architecture. "Exchanging ideas on a project is crucial," Zameer says. It’s made for a partnership like no other
