1. Owner

Puran Kumar

Principal Architect

Puran Kumar established his design studio in Mumbai in 1993, after working for a few years on a diverse range of corporate projects. An advocate of uncomplicated design expressions, he supports and practices the use of natural building materials that lend an everlasting appeal to any design.

From large corporate offices - both domestic and multinational to residential projects that range from apartments and bungalows to villas, Puran's repertoire of architecture and interior projects is as wide as it is simple.

His hallmark space planning and clean-line designs are a natural extension of Puran's sensibilities as a person and an architect. A believer of the fact that to build spaces for anyone, the designer needs to understand the occupant(s) first, Puran invests time and effort in observing and learning about his clients through constant interaction. This has helped him in developing an intuitive perception of the client's needs.

An IIT Roorkee alumnus, Puran believes in flowing with the tide and making the best of what life offers, and enjoys whatever phase of creativity he is in.Puran Kumar established his design studio in Mumbai in 1993, after working for a few years on a diverse range of corporate projects.
