Team 2 Architecture + Design
The practice is established in the pursuit of excellence in design. The core principle that guides the practice is that architecture is a social art intertwined with the need to serve and shape a client’s project vision. We have ventured to maintain this balance in all our projects for the past twenty years. The built form of our projects reflects this close collaborative effort in all stages of the creative process from conception to construction.
Even though design is in the details, we believe `the whole is greater than the sum of the parts’. We holistically strive to assemble the built form with sustainable construction assemblies and systems that promote the health and comfort of its occupants.
The breath of the practice ranges from a plethora of residential remodels and renovations to the planning and design of custom single-family dwellings. In several of these projects, the overall design has also included the detailed interior design of these spaces. Over the past ten years, as a practice we have also branched into the retail sector with the design of commercial interiors and tenant improvements.
We offer design services through all the phases of a project from feasibility studies, conceptual design, design development through construction documentation and construction administration. Fiscal management is of great importance to us, with every effort made to design and build with an eye on the project budget. A wide range of supporting skills such as three-dimensional visualization and model making is the backbone of our practice and is offered as an integrated service.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
"Shilpa and Atul spent many hours working up different options for us and extremely easy to work with! They kept our budget in mind while designing the detached in-law unit. Love the end result of our project and will definitely work with them in the future!"
