Practice Ideology

I perceive architecture as a visual poetry, a language of sorts in which texture, shadows, forms are cohesive with simple elegance.

I have always allowed myself to be led by emotions and images; that are capable of conveying a relationship to the buildings. Visualization when it comes landscape, the textures, the smell of materials – the idea of embracing it, containing it, yet liberating it as much as possible.

I always believed an architect is a catalyst between the site and the building. It’s the passion to create meaningful lasting impression and surely some of the biggest inspirational people in life that drives me.

To make sure your work is the best as it can be through its service to others and contribution to a more sustainable built world.

The design process is simple and complex at the same – the building must elevate you; it should take you to a different level. You need to feel it from deep inside.

My biggest inspiration comes from anything in tropical architecture and of course the great legend – Ar.Geoffrey Bawa himself.
