The Studio was established in 1995 by principals Sanjeev Panjabi (1969) and Sangeeta Merchant (1967).
Educated at the Academy of Architecture, Mumbai (1987-1992)
The practice is 13 people strong and is busy with the construction and design of several residential, commercial and mixed use projects in India and Tanzania (East Africa). The practices early work comprised of several interior refurbishments and interventions. These ranged from a post production studio to residences. Since the year 2000, the practice has graduated to architectural projects such as single family homes, luxury villas and commercial office towers.
Two station points in an architectural perspective render greater depth to an image. Over the last thirteen years and through endless hours we have used each other as station points of revelation; evolving and developing our particular expression to specific conditions. Since 1997 we began adding more points to our studio in our associates and collaborators.
Our architecture/ design is always generated from the act of human occupation and use. The spaces we create are always arrived at from the experience of occupying; through the quality and variance of light, the reference to other spaces and the directness of view, the ability to adapt and the patterns of erosion in materials and memories.
The studios approach and working method is to constantly seek out an appropriate and authentic architectural solution.
We believe that every project we undertake must reflect a strong, sound ideology and honesty in its architectural design, the application of materials and the deployment of technologies.
Since our first commission in East Africa in 1997, new dimensions are constantly being added to our attitude towards construction and the conception of architectural solutions.
We have been engaged in the actual construction and co ordination of projects in close association with the builders, engineers, contractors and technicians from Europe, South Africa and East Africa.
It is through these associations, the act of building and the putting together of its various components, we have aspired to create spaces and structures that are responsive and enduring.
We believe in the judicious deployment of our skills as Architects and not over designing, avoiding the superficial and keeping it simple.
