The endeavor is to build timeless architecture that is a reflection of our time yet rooted in our heritage, not also in its visual appeal and materiality but also in its knowledge of elements of nature and response to climate. We aspire to search for that sutra of continuity that could bind our rich and glorious past and the beads of the future. The architecture is conceived as a sculptural composition defined by a few powerful strokes, resulting in simple & bold built forms.
