Interview with Architect Puran Kumar, Mumbai
When did you first start your practice and what kind of projects have you been doing?
The design studio was established in 1993. And our repertoire of interior-architecture projects is quite wide as we work on large corporate offices – both domestic and multinational, and residential projects that range from apartments to bungalows & villas.
Tell us something about your approach to your projects?
It is about giving your best in terms of the different approaches to a project. Your creativity for space utilization and functionality of the space; for design in terms of aesthetics, keeping it easy on the eye and simplistic; and commitment in terms of detail, to ensure that you are not leaving anything unattended. When all of these approaches to a project come together, the result is the kind of projects that we love to do. These hold good for any type of space to be designed.
Which kind of projects do you enjoy the most?
Projects that are minimalistic in terms of design and aesthetics, largely contemporary that have a certain timelessness and a certain classicism that you can associate with a style, are projects that I generally enjoy. Currently, I am enjoying working on architectural projects – particularly residences. I like to work with clients who trust my design aesthetics. Since I have been doing corporate spaces for a long time, there is a certain comfort level there. On the other hand, the private architectural projects that we are involved in now are very exciting because there is that much more scope to create something new.
