42mm was formed in 2004 in New Delhi as a platform for ideation, exchange and translation; understanding architecture and design as a non-linear, continually transforming process between need, desire, functionality and responsibility in a dynamic social and economic background.
Firmly rooted with a pragmatic approach, the Firm has successfully finished a large variety of Architectural and Interior Design projects; Residential, Commercial, Retail, Corporate and Hospitality while continually evolving and innovating new concepts.
Sensitive to issues regarding contextualization-globalization and environment, the intervention lies in creating meaningful, useful environments which enhance the feeling of well being.
42mm is currently a team of 15 architects and interior designers, collaborating with the best consultants in Building Services, Lighting and Automation, Landscaping, Sustainability and Graphic Design.
At 42mm we understand the necessity of the built environment to enhance the quality of life for the user, to be an expression of its true nature to the surrounding environment, to be responsive to regional sensibilities and to be responsible towards the environment.
The Design Process for each project evolves from a detailed analysis of its Function and User in relation to its site and its social and cultural context. Seamless integration of spatial organization with various systems, like structure, services, finishing and lighting contributes to the Spirit of the Place. With a keen desire to depart from conventional models, we are constantly at work on research, development and implementation of innovative and efficient design strategies, operations and details. Sustainability plays a major role with passive and active solar design, enabling us to create clean, energy efficient and 'low burden' environments.
A strong sense of commitment, ambition and service for each project has won us lasting relationships with our clients.
