PVDRS Is an award-winning architecture and interior design practice based in Ahmedabad, India, founded by Dr Keyur Vadodaria and Megha Patel-Vadodaria. The practice works at various scales, ranging from the design of a door handle to buildings and their surroundings. Through our works, we respond to the users’ climate, culture, and lifestyles. Our spaces are contemporary, contextualized and celebrative. We adopt an approach that is contemporary yet contextualized, making each project unique in its essence. Our spaces respond to the culture and lifestyles of their users. We like to design spaces that celebrate light, colour and scales. Our work often explores the potential of craft and hand skills in architecture, interior and product design.
