SHROFFLEóN is a Mumbai based Architecture, Landscape and Interior Design Studio. The studio is headed by Kayzad Shroff (Cornell,USA) and Maria Isabel Jimenez Leon (Cornell,USA, ETSAS, Spain).
As a boutique practice that offers bespoke solutions to clients needs, SHROFFLEóN approaches each project with a mix of child-like naivety and curiosity which enables the creation of novel and well curated spaces, crafting both living and working experiences – from unique preferences to the way art is exhibited. As a studio SHROFFLEóN approaches each project though a unique frame of reference –looking to and utilizing its context for processes and as an inherent generator of form – a form that emerge from the network of overlapping vectors on site. The practice specializes in developing customized intelligent strategies that result in bespoke solutions, continually prioritizing high quality of design over quantum of work. Embracing, and taking advantage of its boutique scale, the studio ensures each and every project the personal and undivided attention of one, if not both, its principal partners in every aspect of the process, from design conception to post hand over client servicing.
SHROFFLEóN has had its work featured, exhibited and showcased across various platforms nationally- Architectural Digest, Domus, Mondo arc, ElleDecor, et.al. – as well as internationally- Cencer from Contemporary Culture in Barcelona, Backstage Architecture in Venice, Museo ICO in Madrid, etc.
