UNUSUAL WORKSPACES, UNUSUAL WOMEN

The spotlight turns on small office spaces designed by three fine women architects helming successful firms in different cities of India



Pooja Bihani, Priti Tatiya and Urvi Shah are certainly some of the most impressive and inspiring contemporary architects in India today. Their repertoire is impressive, their commitment to creating good design is exemplary, but what takes the work to the next level, is a well-resolved understanding of design problems and their ability to provide much-evolved solutions. This curated piece on small and unusual office spaces is based on each office’s unusual presentation whilst faced with unusual challenges in the client’s brief.
