"We shape our buildings & afterwards
our buildings shape us "
- Sir Winston Churchill
We still like to believe the utopian view that design can effect positive social change, not least due to the influence from multicultural exchange, global economical flows and communication technologies that all together require new ways of architectural and urban organization. We know that we will only create a better kind of architecture by being a better kind of practice. That’s why every employee at Purple is an owner of the business. This democratic working environment ensures we attract, retain and develop the best creative talent and share a united sense of purpose and commitment. In collaboration with an extensive network of experts from many fields and disciplines, we are able to offer an exceptional body of knowledge and expertise that embraces every aspect of a building’s design, construction and performance. Time lines, cost and quality are the other important driving values of our studio. We believe that bold design must be realized with sustainable technology and we strongly believe that the art of architecture lies in creating a maximum impact within the constraints of budgets and functionality. We know from experience that great architecture comes from working with great clients; however, architecture is a public art and we hold ourselves accountable not only to the client, but to the communities, and cities in which we build.
The history of everyone’s favorite start-up is a tech fairytale of one garage, three friends and very humble beginnings. Ours was a bit different, Purple was born out of daily commute in the busy local trains of Mumbai shuttling between Kandivili and Curchgate. We always believed in a name which does not necessarily represent Architecture, we wanted a name which is a bit more pep and vibrant and fresh, hence Purple was the default choice. It was in the winter of 2009 when we decided to start from an rented apartment and now when we look back to the things we have achieved so far we simply have no regrets.
What we do?
We work on simple things, convert aspirations to plans, plans to processes, and processes to its eventuality. We believe design can bring about a change into the socio-economically a lot particularly when discussing the role of design as an agent of change. Our strength and skill would be that our designs are not just aesthetically appealing to the eye, but also offers and wide vanguard of designs solutions in terms of practicality with optimum space utilization along with wide range of material infusions, which ensures that our designs are always fresh and timeless with minimum operational cost.
The difference with Purple is our cultural dedication to Client Satisfaction and to our Design fraternity. We believe our core values of integrity, client satisfaction, innovation and intellect differentiate us from our competitors. Our focus on developing and maintaining a measurable client satisfaction program has created a company culture where each of our associates delivers world class design and service every time we are associated in a project. When you choose to do business with Purple you are partnering with a design studio who cares.
