Anyone who understands architecture, even slightly, knows how difficult it is. To be faced with a blank three-dimensional canvas with an infinite array of forms, colours, textures and materials on your palette. And to paint such that only the painting exists, not the painter. To know that every dot, line and plane that comes out of our hands will stand on the face of the earth for decades, perhaps centuries. This is a massive responsibility – towards the people it serves and towards the planet. It is difficult and it is a sadhana.
We believe that a Building must be what the Land wants, the Inhabitant wants, the Earth and the Sky and the Waters want. Not what the Architect wants.
We are here, as Listeners – of the whispers of Nature and the unarticulated needs of the Users.
We are here, as Enablers – of an Architecture, which will complement the environment, not compete with it.
We are here, as Catalysts – of a Creation that can become a unique journey and a fulfilling milestone for the User.
