Interview with Architect Sharad Kembhavi, Mumbai
When did you first start your practice and what kind of projects have you been doing?
Having started up Kembhavi Architecture Foundation in 1972 with equipped offices in Hubli & Bangalore and a dedicated team, the firm has provided consultancy to 1000 clients and has won numerous commissions across various spheres of construction industry including malls, hotels, corporate offices, transport terminals, health care facilities, cultural centers
Tell us something about your approach to your projects?
We try our best to understand what the client wants, what his aspirations are and then we synthesize this with our logic and understanding of our projects. We consider our client’s to be valued partners in breathing life into projects. We keep the client’s interests as the primary element of our project. Every client gains utmost value by virtue of their open-door policy, and a firm stress on responsive service, quality and timely delivery.
What has been your biggest challenge so far?
Every project comes up with a challenge every now and then. Very hard to say which is the biggest of them all. But I must say convincing people in early 70’s about the need of architecture was a big challenge.
