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.

Ganpati Bappa Morya!

First and foremost I would like to start off this blog by wishing everyone a Happy Ganesh Chathurthi. 


Lord Ganesha is widely known as the deity of fortuitous beginnings and the remover of obstacles. As we start off with our workshop in full effect, the making of a sculpture of Ganesha himself is one of the first few tasks being undertaken there. Over the past couple of days, Nikhil had been working on prototypes of the statue, trying to get the proportions right. After some hit and trial, he had the proportions resolved in a miniature idol that all of us thought was absolutely adorable and unmistakably Ganesha. 




Now it was time for this to translate into stone. The process will take some time from beginning to end. He started off with nothing more than a boulder yesterday, but today on the auspicious occasion of Ganesh Chathurthi we finally see glimpses of Ganpati himself emerging from it!
