Our design philosophy is shaped by various influences and the experience in the field of landscape spanning over a couple of decades. We analyze the natural and designed landscape, which inspires us and kindles our imagination to evolve the most complete, harmonious and naturally elegant landscapes. Books and visual media feed our imagination and reinforce our instincts. Discussion with clients/users stimulates our thinking. In every project we create a strong sense of place through the sensitivity to the project and the artistry with which it is designed. The designed landscape has a strong sense of identity and establishes a harmonious relation with the site and the built form. Our focus is therefore to create an inspiring and harmonizing landscape that is pleasure to human senses.
