Narein Perera runs a small practice, which prides itself in the degree of innovation and holistic applicability of its architectural solutions. Each project is approached as a specific set of social, climatic, contextual and technological nuances that create the basis for a unique outcome. 'Place making' is emphasised with a conscious and meticulous exploration of materials and texture.
