As a profession, we must work for our clients's needs and aspirations. But along with our clients, as a contributor, to the overall development, we feel, we also should fulfil needs and aspirations of two other sets of people.
The appearance of the building form should inspire the "passer bye". It should reflect the honesty of form, and fenestrations. It should be inviting and not dominating.
It should create positivity, hope and curiosity in one's mind.
Secondly, the ambience of the building should make the "end-users", charged with energy, enthusiasm to perform their functions. The success of the building is in the quality of the output generated from these end-users.
We strongly believe, that, the innovation, the uniqueness, the integrity, the appropriateness, of any structure is the direct outcome of the vision and culture of the organisation, responsible in the designing that space.........
Archicon design continues to thrive with this "culture", since its inception. It's a family of like-minded colleagues, vendors, consultants.
The team of colleagues, working in Archicon sees hope, future, opportunities, and care.
An employee entered as an office boy at 1987, is now working with us as a Liasoning executive. Another one, joined as a driver ten years ago, is moulded as a 3-d visualiser, creating superior 3-d views and walkthroughs. Third one, again absorbed as a driver, is now a seasoned interior site supervisor
We have a fleet of repeat clients, consultants, vendors with whom we are associated since more than 35 years
We strongly believe, we need to adapt to changing times and requirements, so along with the legacy and goodwill of over 35 years , we have , dynamic, creative new generation team of partner ar. Nikhil and other colleagues, creating contemporary architecture
To complete the missing link of graphics, signages, murals and paintings to enhance the quality of ambience of the space we design, we now have a young creative storyteller, Surabhi, in our team.
So we now look at Archicon Design, not just as a consultancy firm, but as a Design Lab, deliberating, churning, and experimenting to create unique, innovative spaces.
We, both of us as partners, wish to see Archicon family growing with us in the journey of providing contemporary architecture and interior spaces, pan India.Read More
