COLLAGE is a Young and enthusiastic firm founded in 2008. Being a multi - disciplinary firm it engages in creative and contemporary design solutions with a wide range of projects including architecture and interior services. We attempt to maintain high design standards as we believe that each project has its own peculiarity and cultural interpretation and should be conceived with a unique and an integrated vision. With an eye for detailing, every project regardless of its size is approached with the same enthusiasm taking into consideration the client’s requirements. Our intention is to evolve contextually responsive, culturally rooted and resource efficient spaces that encourage an interaction between the surroundings and its users.
Their practice demonstrates their passion towards creating meaningful spaces that could converse with the surroundings and its users. Taking inspiration from their experience while working at Chandravarkar & Thacker Architects and later under the guidance of architect Sanjay Mohe at Mindspace, the trio attempts to develop an architectural vocabulary that could respond to the diversity of the field with simplicity.
A good design is not when there is nothing more to add but when there is nothing left to take away. With this belief, COLLAGE architecture studio strives to keep their design approach extremely simple. Responding to the context while integrating nature within the built environment, they attempt to create a vocabulary that is contemporary and suffused with innovation.
