banduksmithstudio is an architecture, urban design, and research practice founded by Sachin Bandukwala and Melissa Smith, based in Ahmedabad. Their work engages processes of making through built projects that explore the boundaries of material and craft in the context of contemporary Indian construction. Projects come at any scale, and the practice shifts from furniture and object design, to interiors, renovations, additions, and residential, institutional and commercial architecture.
The office combines a materially sensitive approach to design with respect for the context into which each project is placed. Each celebrates its context through a considered relationship with the physical and social condition of its surroundings. Design is explored as a series of systems; of pieces working together whose addition and combination adds to a whole that works in conjunction with human created urban and rural networks, and with the natural systems of sun, wind, rain, growth and decay.
