Cadence was started as a collaborative architecture practice by architects Narendra Pirgal (B.Arch, R.V.C.E.), Vikram Rajashekar (B.Arch, R.V.C.E.) and Smaran Mallesh (B.Arch, R.V.C.E., M.Arch, Ohio State University, USA) in the year 2005. Having studied in the same school of architecture, they shared a common design philosophy and vision. Since their practice from the outset was speculative, it was imperative to have a firm that designed as a 'studio'. The design process looks to transcend the obvious and to create a more pleasurable and sensorial experience, buildings that celebrated life and thereby made strong statements, statements that created a sense of identity not only for themselves but also their users.
Over the years, this design philosophy combined with an efficient management system and pragmatic approach, has enabled the team to handle projects of varying scales and complexities.
