WHAT WE DO

We are an Architecture and Design studio based in Almora, Uttarakhand. Our studio integrates architecture, interior design, furniture design, urbanism research and sustainability consultations for built spaces.

OUR STORY

Our love for mountains and nature, aversion to metropolitan city lives; some opportunities and fluke moments; and passion to design differently led us to establish our studio in a Himalayan village near Almora in 2016.
