hand-picked from Gujarat!

In this segment we pick up three different typologies – Residential, Corporate, and Hospitality – and showcase some brilliant work being done by Gujarati architects based out of Mumbai!

The ravishing villas in Surat, the stunning corporate office interior in Bhuj, and the luxury hotel in Junagadh, are representative of the growth that India, and particularly Gujarat is witnessing.

Group Seven Architects and Planners is a design practice helmed by renowned architect Nitin Killawala. Over the past five decades, the group has successfully handled varied typology projects such as private residences, housing complexes, R&D centres, corporate offices, educational institutes and spiritual campuses.

Featured here is a unique project: six villas for six cousins and their families on a 4-acre plot on the outskirts of Surat! Displaying a simplistic, contemporary language, the homes however encapsulate the essence of Gujarati family values and lifestyle. 

Studio ARP – Architect Rajesh Patel’s design practice established in 1979, was established as a multi-disciplinary practice encompassing architecture, interiors and industrial design. Over the years the practice shifted its focus to interior design mainly in the corporate and institutional sectors.

Seen here is the studio’s most recent project of the office interiors for Agrocel Industries in Bhuj. Taking inspiration from the region’s local arts and crafts, and deftly weaving a smart and sustainable workspace the 32,000 sq ft project has been awarded the Platinum Green Certification from IGBC!

Designers Group – founded by Ar. Khozema Chitalwala in 1988, has a fine portfolio of ensemble hospitality projects. Blending luxury and simplicity, this global hospitality firm outlines concepts which are smart, user-interactive, and stand up to the specifications of the global market.

Sharing a few glimpses from the firm’s recently completed luxury hotel in Junagadh. Hotel and resort projects in various parts of Gujarat - Surat, Rajkot, Junagadh, Jamnagar, Sasan – are the latest additions to the firm’s impressive footprint across the country!
