It’s easy and quick to ripen mangoes with carbide but we think they don’t taste so real. Instead we prefer to give a little care and time to let mangoes ripen naturally.
Similarly, while making a house there are various readymade things available like plastic chairs, corian table tops, storage cupboards and beds made from various kinds of laminates, shera sheets and ACP sheets to clad exterior walls, vitrified tiles mimicking the natural pattern of marble and much more. But we prefer to avoid such artificial things. Instead we prefer to go to the lati, find a suitable wood, get the furniture made by explaining each and everything to the misty and polish them after getting them oil dipped. Same way we use natural stones, marble, granite and slates, steel and brass, glass and wide range of other natural and pure materials. The process of finding materials, working with craftsmen and applying right techniques - takes time and care. But the result of this prolong process is a house which feels real and where one likes to live forever.
The practice aims at making a building or a space that is not only beautiful today but forever and also to give a better living and a working environment.
