Established by Ambrish Arora, Ankur Choksi and Sidhartha Talwar in 2002, Studio Lotus is a multi-disciplinary design firm with a distinctly contextual approach that “celebrates local resources, cultural influences, a keen attention to detail and an inclusive process.” For almost two decades, the leading practice has put this ethos to the test, building a rich portfolio of projects — from sprawling residences to evocative adaptive reuse projects and more.

Widely published and the recipients of a number of international accolades (from the World Architecture Festival and the Indian Institute of Architects, among others) since its founding, the over-50-person office continues to shape contemporary architecture in their native India and beyond.

Stay tuned for more face to face interviews with global creatives!
