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.

Women who Inspire me


n lieu to the last blog where I talked about being inspired, it turned out to be happy coincidence that the first blog in the series is about women!

Happy International Women’s day ladies!


If you look around the world, women have been making their voices heard, putting points across and taking the lead in some of the most influential circles. The role of a women in any profession is no more a supporting role but a leading one.  So when you set out in search of a strong woman you don’t have to look far away.  She is right there -

In the form of our mothers who can juggle the most difficult tasks and make it looks like a breeze.

In our sisters who gives you half of their cookie,

In a friend, the one who gives you a shoulder when your are heartbroken. 

It is You and it is Me.


One such example who stands out for me is right here in my office - Leena. 


A partner at Sandarbh Design Studio, she is a pro multi-tasker. Intelligent, energetic and beautiful - Leena is constantly persuing new fields to excel in. She's been a model and a VJ, she now focuses her energies on Architecture, Photography and Classical Dance. 

Besides breathing life into every interior design projects she works on, She also brings to life memories as a professional photographer at Red Max Images – a firm that she co founded (you can check out her photography skills here).

But more than all this, she is a great mother to all her kids - 2 and 4 legged :-)

And if you think that this wasn’t enough, she bakes some of the yummiest goodies for all of us at the office! 


Leena is a great example of a woman who truly believes that the sky is absolutely no limit and lives by it! A woman can have a social life, a family life and be kickass in her job.


Leena, thank you for being such an inspiration.
