FAQ

What services do architects provide ?

An architect offers a level of professional service and expertise which no other building professional can provide. Architects see an immense depiction when it comes to your project. They help you explore what appeals to you aesthetically and what you require functionally. They coordinate teams of design, engineering and construction professionals; they see through the building codes and zoning requirements; they provide design leadership so that your project is built the way it was intended.

At what point in my project should I involve an architect ?

As soon as you decide you want to start planning your project, you should find appropriate architects whose design philosophy satisfies your design perception. Architects provide important pre-design services including site evaluation, and can help you explore options you may not have considered. Involving an architect early in the process can help avoid costly missteps, and increase the likelihood of your satisfaction with the project.


Don't architects add substantial cost to a project ?

While it's true that architects' fees are an additional project cost, hiring an architect can actually save you money in various ways. Architects can monitor your budget and negotiate to get the best materials and workmanship at a good price. An architect's design can reduce energy and maintenance costs, and provide an efficient layout so that you don’t overbuild what you really need. They can turn a difficult lot into a successful building site. And they spend time planning and fully developing your ideas to avoid changes once construction is underway.


What's my role in the design process ?

We will depend on you to communicate about your design preferences, functional requirements, and budget. Your timely response to questions and design submissions will help keep the project on track. It is also important for you to raise any concerns you have as the project proceeds, so they can be addressed in the earliest stages. Working in partnership with us will help achieve a successful outcome for your project.


What is your design philosophy ?

Our design philosophy comes from a deep recognition by observing our existing complex circle .It is time to evolve to the next level, where form and space are derived from a perspective of sustainability. The climate of the building location will have a stronger influence on the building design than a preconceived aesthetic that can be inserted into any location regardless of the local environment. Using natural systems as inspiration and new technologies as tools, we’re working toward a “new architecture” that expresses the environmental strategies in the form and spaces of the building. We believe that design must be an inclusive process. We strive to understand exactly how clients aspire to experience a building before designing according to their needs. We do co-relate the architecture styles such as Modern, Tropical, traditional etc.. with the site context. We then use an intuitive approach that promotes harmony and balance in the environment through our design. After all, design is creative problem solving.


What architecture style do you pursue ?

We are not restricting the boundaries of our creativity in any particular style, But we strictly follow our design philosophy and design schemes with respect to the site context. Our design process uses a three-tier design approach to heat, cool, and light buildings in the most efficient and effective manner. We start at the very beginning of the design process by analyzing site and climatic conditions using advanced tools, software and on-site observations to determine the appropriate environmental strategies for each project.
