EXPERTISE

Hi, I am Anjana Suresh. Architecture has always been an integral part of my life, since I hail from a family that has travelled all over the world, been exposed to various cultures- rural and urban. This has given me a better insight into planning, construction technology, functionalities, aesthetics and their physical and visual circulations.

I passionately believe in the Principles of Design, and that balance, symmetry, rhythm, contrast and harmony work cohesively for a functional and aesthetic space. As a naturally enthusiatic, determined and hard-working person, I am driven to improve the quality of life through sustainable and energy efficient architecture.
