associated architects (i) pvt. ltd.

Young architects freshly graduated from M. S. U. Baroda, sat by a roadside cafe mulling over thought of a team work for an ethical and innovative practice of architecture. They work for a short period of time with stalwarts of Ahmedabad and start working on their own by late evenings at residence of one of them. Soon they found enough work to get on their own feet. They kick started a practice in the name of ‘the associates’. The firm moved out to a commercial space and started its growth. This went on to become (associated architects (i) pvt. ltd.) and growth continues.
The core team of associated architects (i) pvt. ltd. consists of the four principal Architects

Our mantra at work is ‘Appropriate Architecture’. We at aapl evaluate each project according to its type, functional needs, budgets, size, aesthetic demands, inclination of user and other relevant parameters. We conceptualize each with references to climate, context, and location. This analysis is used to arrive appropriate design decisions & appropriate construction solution. Design development is done by series of massing and modeling at various stage of project progress until a completely satisfactory result is achieved. We have always been commuted to a fair ethical and transparent practice Right from the inception. This was one of the prime moral of getting together.

Our convergent structural system brings together a team of professionals to a core of design excellence through layer of thought filtering at every level. We, through a channelized management system and a design philosophy arrive at an appropriate design solution with a refined process and professional skills.
