About Us

Purple Architecture is involved in designing and realizing a diverse array of urban, cultural and commercial projects nationwide. We approach our projects with the attitude that to make great places, you must believe in the future, but also remember the past. Purple is an architectural practice with a reputation for challenging convention and pursuing design excellence. Since we opened our doors in 2010, we’ve worked on over numerous projects nationwide covering a wide range of sectors operating from two studios Guwahati & Shillong. The firm was co-founded by Biswarup Deb Roy and Prashanta Ghosh. We offer our expertise in Architectural, Interiors and Product Design related work, both in Design Consultancy and Design Build Module. The Bangalore Studio includes a product design division known as PurplePicʞ.

Our Concept

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.

History

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.

Our Process

Obtaining requirements

On the first stage of the process PURPLE representative would converse with the client and get a sense of the requirement. The more detailed the understanding of the requirements, the more accurate the proposal can be, and hence PURPLE team would seek a suitable time, as per Client for a personal meet.

Determine site location

PURPLE representative would solicit a visit to the proposed site location along with the client as this enables to understand and discuss on how the site could be used to the client’s best advantage. A site visit would also give PURPLE team an idea of the prevailing standards in the precinct.

Create design proposal

After studying the site and discussing the requirements with the client, team would now conceptualize design ideas. We emphasize on the basic form of the structure and does not involve any detailing. Making a working model or 3D images of the basic form helps the client in visualizing the overall looks of the project.

Submit project plan and costing

After client is satisfied with the conceptual design, the technical aspects and costing of the project can be outlined. We prepare detailed project plans, work out costs, finalize contractors & etc., make schedules & form deadlines

Relationship Management

Designers would be dedicated to Client’s account at agreed locations. PURPLE team will liaise with Client / SPOC periodically to address concerns / suggestions / value add ups etc proactively.
