DEVISE DESIGN: Delivering Unique Integrated Solutions via Research Based Approach

As the architecture industry is witnessing more and more technological innovations and increasing level of complexity in the design process, architects around the world are leveraging various forms of research to enhance a project's quality. However, there are only a handful of organizations in India that utilize this powerful research-based strategy to provide creative solutions with sustainable and responsive designs. DEVISE DESIGN is one such architectural firm that has carved a niche for itself in the contemporary design and planning sector through its research-based approach. "We actively investigate to develop design skills, so as to formulate newer design methodologies with which to adapt the building environment to the continuous transformation in cultural context," remarks Ar. Atul Mhatre, Principal Architect & Founding Partner, DEVISE DESIGN.
