Karan Grover and Associates though a young architectural practice, has emerged into a multi-disciplinary organization with the best associate consulting teams for all the services, which is seen as an integral part of the architectural design process.
Some of the fundamental values that the architectural belief stems from the standpoint of creating a ‘Contemporary’ Indian architectural idioms and language drawing essences from Tradition and Culture in very fundamental planes.
The project of ‘Traditionalism’ is then explored as an attempt at re- instating and reinterpreting some of the fundamental forms that have shaped our architectures over centuries - yet dramatically opposing the ideas of cosmetic duplication of historical forms and elements. The work instead focuses on grasping or attempting to grasp some of the fundamental essentials.
With these values as a springboard, the practice attempts to conceive buildings and design projects that are very Contemporary, at times Futuristic in their physical and architectural expressions, technological and material innovations and use.
In the sense architectural and design activity is pursued as a ‘Contextual’ project - with the idea of creating ‘Places of Identity’ be it, Public or Commercial buildings, Cultural or Institutional projects, Housing, Corporate or Interior designing. It’s in this direction that the firm firmly believes in.
The design work and project are seen as opportunities to explore and orientate in this particular direction in architecture.
