About Divya Ethirajan : Divya Ethirajan is the Founding Partner and Principal Architect. She graduated from R.V. College of Engineering, Bangalore. Her Architectural Thesis on Rejuvenation of Russell Market, Bangalore, won all India best thesis award in 2007 at National Institute of Advanced Studies in Architecture (NIASA). Divya has interned with Arya Architects in Ahmedabad and continued working there post her graduation and thereafter with Hundredhands from 2006 to 2010. During this time she got to work on residential, commercial, hospitality and several award winning competition projects. In 2010, she teamed up with Pramod Jaiswal to start BetweenSpaces. Her keen sense of punctuality, simplicity and immense patience has been instrumental in developing the ethos of the practice. You will always find her smiling but don’t get deceived by her silence or her smiles because she is listening to every word you speak, processing it and working on the design solution. She is a multitasker.
STATEMENT OF ART:
Our work is an expression of our beliefs. We believe Architecture is about conversation, a dialogue between spaces. Between Spaces could be bricks in the wall, the mortar between bricks, glass, water, light or even air. Between Spaces defines the street between houses, the fence between the buildings, the stairs between floors, the space between walls, the wall between rooms, the threshold or even a fold between pages. The making of these spaces and something between spaces through simple strategies of orientation, scale, volume, proportion, spatial and material manipulations and manipulation of light to get these unique spaces forms the core of our practice.
As architects, we endeavor to create buildings that are respectable and responsible, are cost effective and makes living comfortable and gratifying. As much as the practice loves to explore these intimate spaces and work on construction details, it also has its interest in how the building sits on the site and interacts with the street and its surrounding. We enjoy working with certain materials; bricks, concrete, wood, metal, light and air but our design evolves as a response to a clear understanding of our client’s requirements and aspirations. We question, we debate and analyse the brief to come up with ideas which are unique and native to the context.
We refrain ourselves from any stylistic approach to a project and like to keep it simple. In all our works, irrespective of the size and nature, we endeavor to achieve a balance between ever changing, pluralistic milieu and the rich traditions we are rooted to. The search is for a contemporary expression with a soul deeply embedded in traditional sensibilities which could produce an architecture that belongs to its time and place.
