Design can be art, design can be aesthetics. Good design is always simple and that is why it is so complicated to execute. I believe in taking ownership and making my work as beautiful as I can no matter how big or small. says Mr. Chawla. It's no longer enough to create spaces that function, that are obviously understandable and usable, we now need to create spaces that enhance the sense of being, that bring joy, and yes, beauty to people's lives. It is a privilege to create beautiful spaces and I feel really blessed to be doing exactly that This has been the driving force for this self-motivated and enterprising Business Head of Essentia Environments. One of the founding members of Adrem Group the parent company, Hardesh holds an MBA from INSEAD, France and has over fifteen years of experience in bringing complex and exciting designs to life.

Having lived and worked in number of countries he imbibed a sense of professionalism and integrity that has largely defined his career and an engineering background has allowed him to stay objective and look for elegant solutions to complex problems. After a successful career in financial services and real estate, Hardesh found his true calling in creating beautiful spaces for discerning clients in India and overseas. From corporate offices to showrooms to restaurants and of course high end residences he has done it all.

I thrive in a challenging environment. I enjoy pushing myself and my team and in the process evolve and improve myself and the processes. I love meeting commitments and take huge pleasure in meeting the deadlines. The feeling that you get after a job well done is immensely satisfying and gives a high that remains unmatched for me at least says Mr. Chawla. Building spaces is a team effort and having a large and professional team is the key that sets us apart. What further helps is the experience of having created hundreds of spaces over the past years and the fact that all the necessary skill sets are available in house. Having uninterrupted access to one of largest Design rooms in the region to qualified MEP and HVAC consultants, to finishing staff like carpenters, painters etc. provides us with an unmatched degree of flexibility and confidence to meet any deadline he further adds.

Mr. Chawla attempts to capture the spirit of his times and engage in the exciting potential that bubbles at the surface of modern India. In his own words: Essentia Environments gives me the freedom to express the confidence, power and attitude of today's design world. It also gives me the opportunity to say and do something about the way I want our modern India to be.

Over the years Hardesh has developed his own style and mastered the art of immaculate dressing. An avid squash player and a regular at gym, Hardesh believes that design is inevitable. The alternative to good design is bad design, not no design at all.
