"Forgive me, but sometimes I need my solitude to create."
- Geoffrey Bawa.
After working in various architecture studios across the country, I was faced with an internal struggle: working as I was or realizing my own vision of a well-managed architectural practice. I chose the latter and Studio Lagom was born.
Our practice exists to question the Indian architectural landscape which is still quite poorly organized, where “layers of materials” have reigned over “purity of materials”. We believe in architecture that gives importance to the beauty of each material, creating the right balance between less and more.
We believe in creating a form that not only follows function, but creates spaces for lifestyles and cultures.
In our studio, the culture is attentive. We believe that each building requires care, because each building is unique in terms of its users, its setting, its function, etc. Each process must be rigorously followed in order to create something that is in harmony with nature. We love to infuse natural elements into spaces.
Our process is grounded in attention to detail. First detailing each element of the plan, we move on to execution on site. Sometimes as the site progresses, new perspectives may require a new set of details, which would lead to new solutions. We believe that without this time devoted to the details, we cannot do justice to the current project.
Our studio is a constantly evolving space. The seed sown in 2011 has now grown from a sapling to a tree. Years of dedicated work and a nurturing nature of fine arts have resulted in a space that is both calming and inspiring. Ideas can be conceived here easily because space allows one to think - after all, it is the function.
Today our practice is involved in creating beautiful residences, attractive commercial spaces, sustainable furniture, experiential restaurants, inspiring institutional spaces, and more. If you have a vision in mind and would like to discuss it, please contact us.
As we struggle through the unknown, we see only the bright future that is no less than nature itself, and no more.
We are Studio Lagom.
