    Journey of Design Process!

    Could you write in short about the philosophy you go with when designing a certain project?

    Our design philosophy is a by-products of amalgamation of great team with unique ideas. We believe coming from the private realm, we have the responsibility to do our part in enriching the lives of people and communities. The integration of our approach to architecture allows us to do that. Here at THE CROSSBOUNDARIES; artists, sculptors, designers to owners, we do what it takes and care how it’s done. We wish to create a sense of wonder and excitement when one enters a space designed by us. Also we do it by marrying artistic methods of design with Architecture and Interiors. Our approach is very chaotic upfront. Our interest in art, fashion, lifestyle, travel and design is reflected in varied palette of works done. We look at design holistically often blurring the boundaries between the disciplines of architecture, interior design, landscape, product and lighting.

    What is the inspiration behind your concept developments and design ideations?

    Nature is the inspiration behind our concepts. We strive to innovate out of the ordinary and mimic the smallest part of nature making it a part of design.

    With online platforms showcasing a variety of trends, how did you decide on your signature style amidst the ever changing trends?

    The idea of never being satisfied with your design is a philosophy rooted in continuous improvement and innovation. It means refusing to settle for mediocrity and constantly seeking ways to enhance and evolve your creations. This mindset transcends design; it applies to all aspects of life. By never becoming complacent and always striving for improvement, you open yourself up to new possibilities, challenges, and opportunities for growth. It’s about embracing change, pushing boundaries, and ultimately, leaving a lasting impact through your work and actions.

    What values do you prioritize in your life and how do they reflect in your way of work?

    The Crossboundaries believe in harmonizing with the natural environment rather than imposing upon it. This ethos guides every aspect of our work, ensuring that our designs not only coexist with nature but also enhance its beauty and integrity.

    Beyond Design!

    Apart from designing, which are other hobbies that inspire you to keep going?

    Apart from designing, traveling serves as a boundless wellspring of inspiration for me. Exploring new cultures, landscapes, and architectures broadens my perspective and enriches my creative process. Whether it’s wandering through bustling city streets, immersing myself in serene natural surroundings, or marveling at historic landmarks, each journey fuels my passion for design and infuses fresh ideas into my work. Traveling ignites my curiosity, stimulates my senses, and nurtures a deep appreciation for the beauty and diversity of the world, ultimately driving me to push the boundaries of creativity in my designs.

    Which aspect of interior designing brings you the sense of fulfilment?

    The aspect of interior design that fulfills me the most is crafting spaces that evoke emotions, foster connections, and elevate experiences. Creating atmospheres that tell stories and facilitate human connection brings me immense satisfaction.
