Akshay Heranjal

Akshay Heranjal is the Co-Founder and Principal Architect of ‘The Purple Ink Studio’, Bangalore. After having graduated from B.V.B Hubli, he has been privileged to have worked with Ar. Karan Grover, Ar. Sameep Padora and Ar. Sanjay Puri before starting his own practice with Aditi Pai in 2011. The purple ink studio was started with the ideas of two individuals who strongly believed in their respective design concepts and had nurtured the feeling over the past couple of years. Considering that both Aditi and Akshay came from different architectural backgrounds, one being extremely rational, aesthetic yet responsive and the other that is based on strong responses to nature and inclusion of natural elements in design, the studio has had passionate influences of both and sees a continuous evolution in exploring the best of both worlds. The Studio believes in constantly exploring the parameters of design and blurring the boundaries between architecture, landscape and sustainability. The studio works closely on each program and situates its projects within a wider research context. We believe in an integrated approach, which is complex, generative and moves beyond the digital techniques. We are constantly engaging in the practices of ‘Regenerative Architecture’ that focuses on conservation and performance through a focused reduction on the environmental impacts of a built structure.
