Amit Khanna Design Associates
Central to our design ethos is the need to design buildings that perform better than the industry average and raise the bar for ethical construction standards.
We love building things
The quest for absolute quality implies that we follow a unique method of design development. We imbibe the skills & experience of the people who actually make the buildings & objects that we design. Their involvement acknowledges them as equal stakeholders in the process, & allows us to better predict construction outcomes & quality control.
"Had a fabulous experience working with Amit and his team on a turnkey residential project.
He is not your run of the mill architect. He's trustworthy, flexible and most importantly a thorough professional."
CEO, The Education Alliance
The focus is to deliver innovation that uplifts our environment.
Every object we produce, be it a 60,000 sq ft office building or a 0.5 sq ft light fixture, undergoes the same scrutiny of process & exactitude, that is founded in suitable materiality and innovation, irrespective of appearance.
Current building technology and construction practices still limit our ability to achieve net-zero, i.e. a building that manages to generate as much energy as it consumes. However, thoughtful design can measurably reduce the amount of energy that a building needs & each tiny improvement adds up to a significant change in the overall environmental impact of our work.
We take client’s goals and need for strategic design and seamless delivery seriously, connecting our entire team to leverage its creativity, knowledge and experience.
We partner with our clients to deliver integrated sustainable solutions for a diverse range of building types and environmentally challenging situations.
"Working with Amit was a great experience. He has awesome ideas and delivers on time.
We’ve done two projects with him and we will do many more together."

Thoughtful design can measurably reduce the amount of energy that a building needs & each tiny improvement adds up to a significant change in the overall environmental impact of our work.
AKDA employs an holistic approach to the physical form of each building, from the massing, orientation, and the arrangement of its constituent parts, in order to ensure a responsible approach to the buildings' overall environmental performance.
Current projects include commercial & industrial buildings, corporate offices, hospitality, boutique retail, multifamily housing, private houses & furniture. AKDA endeavours to employ technologies that sustain rather than pollute, that are durable rather than replaceable, and that add value over time rather than falling prey to short term economies.
