The firm has maintained a prominence in the profession through a commitment to an “inward” design process , where the concepts that drive each building design is derived from a internalization of the implication of need, climate, materials and culture and this is where the inner most inspiration of the firm yields ideal solutions. The firm is committed to treating and finalizing a solution that is derived from the careful analysis, following scientific method that has yielded successful designs in range of geographical, economical and socio- cultural contexts. The innovation to experiment with new materials and construction techniques continues as a theme; just as the minimization of the ecological foot print of each project remains a commitment.
BSAP treats the clients’ needs as paramount, rather than imposing personal stylistic preferences and ideological tendencies. But the practice does not shy away from leaving a stamp on each project, be it scale, or the introduction of regional and vernacular elements and use of colour.
We continue our quest for creating innovative design solutions that are sustainable in a large scale. Evolving design solutions that are contextual and creating spaces that revolutionize the way they are experienced from the essence of the firm’s design philosophy. And with over 27 years of experience with a wide spectrum of architecture projects from individual residences to multi storied mixed used building complexes.
The ensuring process is a culmination of well thought of functional spaces which not only transcends beyond just utility and functionality but is highly climate, cultural and site specific and goes beyond sustainability and performance.
We firmly believes in a collaborative, inclusive and appropriate design process which is a dialogue between the architect, client and eventually the end user. We seek a collaborative and constructive relationship with the clients, whom we consider an integral part of the design process.
Above all, our practice is flexible, evolving and innovative.
