‘Kimaya’ literally is the ancient alchemy of distilling gold from simple metals - a process lost to mankind over the centuries. It is a word often associated with miracles and the achievement of seemingly impossible results.
To the late Shri. Madhav Achwal (Noted architect and writer) “…it is a journey from the routine give and take of every day life to a world of the most complete and beautiful consciousness…” ( )
For us it is the miracle of striking a pleasant balance between the routine and the sublime, the useful and the beautiful, the measurable and the immeasurable - through one of worlds’ oldest occupation of providing shelter.
In a world of growing specialisation the specialist tends to borrow deep into his hole progressively getting away from the surface. Having acquired a number of specialised skills it is our effort to balance these with the general common skills.
Operating from Pimpri - Chinchwad, a small town close to Pune has been a conscious decision, asserting our faith in decentralization.
Architecture today is in a state of flux and in a position to achieve richness through its ability to address to the past, present and future without fear or favour to either. Man and environment remain the common denominators. Technology should constantly readjust to serve and express these constants.
It is through this consciousness that we at ‘KIMAYA’ are trying to achieve spontaneous expression.
