AKDA integrates the disciplines of architecture, interior design, sustainability, furniture, lighting and product design under a singular ethos.
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.
We do not fear the abundance of information available to clients. Rather than fight for control over the process, we embrace our clients’ awareness and allow them to participate in the evolution of the design.
The focus is to deliver innovation that uplifts our environment instead of allowing our built environment to be a mish-mash of private agendas, the outcome of misinformed aspiration.
We are deeply sensitive to the local urban environment that we inhabit. As our projects increase in scale & scope, their subsequent impact on the micro-context encourages us to think of community issues, in addition to our clients’ interests. Through recent projects, we have improved urban edges and the comfort of non-paying users on the street.
Sustainability is defined as our ability to meet the needs of the present generation without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs.
