The built form and the written word, both have a lot in common. Some relations are more literal – the basic building blocks, the structure, certain distinctive elements. But, both go well beyond the physical and the literal -  The ultimate purpose behind designing buildings and writing prose is to invoke feelings, to lead one through space and time, to tell stories.

While our buildings tell the specific stories of our client’s, it is through our words that are able to share our stories with you. It is through our words that we are able to visualize and create narratives that drive the process. It is these words that fuel the excitement in anything and everything that we do – whether it be about the artisans and craftsmen who work with us, simple construction processes or just the spaces that we experience.

Here is a glimpse of some of these stories.

And they too leave

The last year has been one of the beat times at the Studio. Lots of fun times, lots of work, some exciting projects and fantastic design solutions. The environment has been one of fun, focus, creativity and lots and lots of laughs. Its been one of our most productive times.

A lot of that gaiety has been due to our fabulous batch of interns. Most had started their internship with us last July-August and continued till last month. More joined in Jan and all of them will be leaving by the end of May.

Afreen, Shaz, Kiri, Sid and Kavi have left and the office had quietened down. the next to go was Jamsheed and then Shreya. Ritika has also left and now only Meghna and Drashti are here till the end of the month. Though the new set of interns will start coming in by the beginning of June, those few days in transition will be a huge void.


Shreya, What an inspiration you have been! I have always been a reluctant blogger. Ananya though a contant blogger has been busy as well. You gave life to the sandarbh blogs and before long both of us (mostly because we have you since you are not here) have jumped into the project365 wasgon as well! Keep trying to think in German and finding the 'sexiness' in buildings and if not earlier, we'll see in New York for sure! Sai doesnt often bet on too many people easily but he as well is confident you'll be there! All the best! 


Jamsheed, The first thing I think about when I think of you is the day you joined. I hadnt spoken much to you before that and we all met at Harshita's place that evening. I still remember how you were telling us all about your ... er .... life. We will miss how you smile everytime you are confused! The look on your face when I totally boggled with you colours and tiles and tiling drawings! The most amount of work and dedication I have seen from you is when you were racing to finish the carpentary in Ally's room before her birthday. Kudos to you and all the best! 


Ritika, Ritika, Ritika, being as smart as you are, I always wonder how you manage to say the darnest things at times!! Your punctuality is to be learned from (and clocks set to!) and zest for life to be cherished. Sketch more, design more, travel more and have the bestest of times ahead. Also, we should all visit 'Azer-baijaan' together sometime for sure! 



Drashti, Sweety!! So glad we found out that you are Sweety before your internship winds up! We dont remember to use it enough though! You are the cadd, working drawing expert in office right now and I cant imagine who would do that after you leave! We will miss all the roommate tales as well!  Everything about you is so different from what meets the eye! So many facets to you! Stay that way - its what makes you awesome! 


Meghna, creative to the core and the perfect person to have opted to become an architect! I cant think of a better example of good employee and hard worker right now! You take all the challenges thrown at you head on and come out shining. I love the spirit and dedication! So glad you will be joining Sandarbh as an architect :-) 


Just a week before Drashti and Meghna leave and the void will be felt even if for a little time. I thought I would wait till both of you finish before putting this post up but then again, what better a way to remind you to throw us a going away party! 

Best wishes to you all from the bottom of our hearts! Stay happy, create amazing spaces and be in touch!
