Collective Architecture Practice is an architectural practice established by Shashank Jain in year 2008.
Shashank studied architecture at School of Planning and Architecture, New Delhi
graduating in 2002. Practice offers architecture, interior design and project
Cost, aesthetics and
sustainability are collectively considered in design of a project from concept
through execution; one cannot be compromised for the other and a healthy
balance is maintained. Practice works with the philosophy that it is the space
to be inhabited, which is the fundamental purpose of building. Materials that
lend aesthetics & character to a building are selected at a very initial
stage of design. Designs are evolved on
a strong research base and are derived from intuition & analysis
considering context, which are then studied in 3 dimensions with materials. Architects
and engineers collectively work to produce an integrated design.
