Culture and Values

Design Philosophy

Our Design Philosophy is to consciously be responsive to the ecology and address the concerns of consumption of resource scarcity that challenge the sustainability of humanity.

Art & Heritage

Woodcarving, Sculpture, Music, Painting, Metal Work, Weaving, Pottery are all embedded into our consciousness. Incorporating these materials into the basic design grammar help us support and revive village crafts and traditional skills.


The advent of the internet and social media will shape architecture in the future as in "crowd funding". This is design thinking in the extreme and an exciting innovation for the future.
