” It’s easy and quick to ripen mangoes with carbide but I think they don’t taste so real. Instead I prefer to give a little care and time to let mangoes ripen naturally.
Similarly, while making a house there are various readymade things available like plastic chairs, corian table tops, storage cupboards and beds made from various kinds of laminates, shera sheets and ACP sheets to clad exterior walls, vitrified tiles mimicking the natural pattern of marble and much more. But I prefer to avoid such artificial things. Instead I prefer to go to the lati, find a suitable wood, get the furniture made by explaining each and everything to the misty and polish them after getting them oil dipped. Same way I use natural stones, marble, granite and slates, steel and brass, glass and wide range of other natural and pure materials. The process of finding materials, working with craftsmen and applying right techniques – takes time and care. But the result of this prolong process is a house which feels real and where one likes to live forever. ”
For every project, I start with an original design concept. Still there are some basic principles which guide lines all of our projects, we call these principles ‘Organic Architecture’.
principals of organic architecture
- In every building use of spaces, design, material and budget should be in harmony. No two persons are same and no two buildings can be. Every building should be unique and exactly according to the client’s requirement.
- At least 40% of spaces should be filled with greenery. Trees in garden, plants in balconies and terraces, use of flowerbeds on upper floors and interior plants in the house to create healthy and cooler life!
- The design of building should be done in a way that it uses natural light, wind and rain water in maximum possible way. That gives better living environment and minimizes electric bill.
- In building and in interior use of natural or long-lasting materials like stone, brick, marble, slate, wood, steel, brass, glass etc. Beauty of building should not be temporary but everlasting.
