Urban Studio is a multi disciplinary firm with a boutique vibe and we enjoy a 360 degree approach right from masterplanning to the smallest product details. We want to build something that can stay relevant in the perspective of time.
Our work in India operates within the cultural context of the country and yet suggests that each project is a product of cultural mutation and reinvention. We try and maintain the spirit of each location , desire of people and attempt to integrate the real, imaginary and the symbolic with ease. Our work questions the political and ethical responsibility of the contemporary Indian designer and is concerned with its public consequences.
We aim for simplicity, conceptual rigour and material invention:
strive for shadows
gusts of the Arabian sea.
