About Aijaz Hakim Architect : Aijaz H. Hakim as Principal Architect brings over twenty five years of comprehensive experience. Aijaz returned to India after working with Cabell Childress Architects, Colorado; Johannes Van Tilburg + Partners, Los Angeles & Altoon + Porter Architects, Los Angeles. AHA [aijaz hakim architect] was founded in Pune, India in 1994. It is a proprietary owned multi disciplinary firm that has completed a broad range of projects in architecture, landscape and interior design. Aijaz, brings his vast experience in International and Domestic design, which includes dealing with timely deliverables, and exacting international quality standards in an effective framework along with hands on project experience. Aijaz is responsible to provide leadership on local knowledge and adaptation for architecture, and interior design. Together with his team, he delivers cost effective construction and design solutions. He travels extensively, his interests are diverse and is unapologetic about his love for rock music and his collection of electric guitars.
STATEMENT OF ART:
The shortest distance between two points is a straight line. This straight line is the easiest to draw and build. The fewer the lines, the better the project. This is the essence of minimalism and mostly what we would like to follow in our design. All this without compromising the essence of space imagined.

Our design aesthetic is ruled by a number of factors. The biggest and the most unpredictable factor; being the nature of the client. Great clients contribute positively. The others focus on bang for the buck.

The strength of our work lies in a very modern and non-conformist approach to the profession. As the leader of my design firm, my personal contribution to every project is large. I bring to them my life's experiences from teachings, situations, travel, education, failed schemes, failed relations, aspirations, discipline etc. The combinations of these make our projects unique.
