Practice Ideology – reD Architects
Our process and approach toward each project are equally rigorous and comprehensive. reD was established in 2004 by a team of self-motivated people empowered to act with a purpose. The purpose was to set up a design practice with a process-oriented design approach. We strive to achieve the client’s goals through the process of research.
Our team ensures that the design solution generates an environment that surpasses trends and fads by offering a more enriching spatial experience. We started as a small two-person team and have grown to a team of over 30 architects and interior designers.
Our assignments include product design, interior design, architectural design, and urban design. The process and approach toward each are equally rigorous and comprehensive. Our designs accommodate the ‘perceptions’ of users/clients and understand that there are no absolute solutions to any design project.
Our team collaborates with artists, sculptors, product designers, marketing, branding consultants, furniture manufacturers, structural engineers, and landscape artists regularly to enrich the design process and add invaluable insights into each professional’s projects.
