Abstract Architecture

About us


We aspire towards a holistic architecture, assessing the wholeness of the contexts of a given project, enhancing both the human activities, with care to the program, functionality, aesthetic, haptic, and culture of the clients, while taking into account and ideally enhancing the natural living systems as well the larger society. All these contexts of the client, nature, and society aid the generation of ideas and forms and meet our longing for architectural coherence and harmony. 


At the beginning of a project, we start an in-depth dialogue with our clients about the visions and needs they bring to the project. Simultaneously we are researching the local potentials of the building site and the surrounding ecologies of nature and society, including aspects of the site, program, cultural context, urban conditions, local climate, and regional technology.


Sustainability is an inseparable part of the whole process starting from sketching to implementing the work on site. Using resources judiciously and focusing on not exploiting nature is a value we hope to share with potential clients. Therefore we promote the use of local materials and try to create architecture that is durable and in harmony with the site. 


All this is brought into our design process, including ample discussion, brainstorming, sketching, and positive debates. After finalizing the basic structure of the design the construction documents are generated, finally implementing and building the project. The outcomes are earthy, beautiful, functional, sustainable, and innovative spaces strongly influenced by and inclusive of their surroundings.

  3. Auroville wants to be the bridge between the past and the future. Taking advantage of all discoveries from without and from within, Auroville will boldly spring towards future realisations.

  4. Auroville will be a site of material and spiritual researches for a living embodiment of an actual human unity.

About Auroville

"Auroville will be a site of material and spiritual researches for a living embodiment of an actual human unity." - The Mother

Mother envisioned Auroville as a place on earth which no nation could claim as its own, where all human beings of goodwill who have a sincere aspiration could live freely as citizens of the world and obey one single authority, that of the supreme Truth; a place of peace, concord and harmony where all the fighting instincts of man would be used exclusively to conquer the causes of his sufferings and miseries, to surmount his weaknesses and ignorance, to triumph over his limitations and in-capacities; a place where the needs of the spirit and the concern for progress would take precedence over the satisfaction of desires and passions, the search for pleasure and material enjoyment.
