    Pratinav Chadha Architects

    What is the story of your passion for architecture? 

    Fascination towards details in buildings with retrospect to design principles has always been there in my mind. So, this path was laid even before the inception of my professional stage. Whenever I design something it acts as wind beneath my wings and I feel even more alive.

    What pushed you to commence your own architecture studio?

    Always wanted to innovate in design and what better way than starting my own studio and cater thinking architecture worldwide.

    Journey of Design Process!

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

    For office projects, my vision is to develop a creative sanctuary where each of the team members is comfortable in the working space. For residential projects, my vision is to emphasise on functionality keeping in mind the utilities of family residing.

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

    For some it has been geometric intricacies, for some vivid colours and for some it has been taken from sculptural carvings at our Indian temples.

    With years of learning and practice in architecture, how did you evolve your design language?

    Now we’re heavily using Parametric and computational modes in design methodologies while also relying on sketches.

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

    Interaction with nature and natural surroundings is important in my daily life and I make sure each of my work also prioritises in connecting indoors with outdoors.

    A Sneak Peek Into The Projects By Pratinav Chadha Architects

    Looking back at all the design projects you’ve worked on, which is the project that has made an impact on you?

    Jubinav Chadha Fashion Design Studio has made a very lasting impact on me as its design concept was heavily inspired by sculptural carvings at our temples in India. I consider myself a spiritual being and it further connected me with the deep sense of mythology of our land.

    Considering the quick paced lifestyle of today, how do you use technology to deal with the project challenges?

    Since the beginning of our firm there has always been a strong inclination towards use of Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Computational and Parametric design methodologies in our projects.

    Could you share the story of a project which has truly challenged you go beyond your conventional style of approach?

    For a particular residence project, the client wanted only sketches and was emphasising on Block type architecture. So, we developed those sketches keeping his design inclination in mind and furthered the project after sketches were approved and then only developed the 3D views.

    How do you think your projects can make a change in the way people perceive built spaces?

    Our projects always have a wall or a corner which would definitely create a sense of curiosity, be it the 3D CNC carved walls or the gently crafted as well as acoustic ceilings. We keep in mind that some form of curiosity has to be there for the person visiting.
