Design Philosophy

Design matters has designed a wide variety of projects-residences, apartments, resorts, schools, residential interiors – all with the single minded emphasis on making the design matter.

The firm believes that a good design has to be functional-taking care of clients requirements, enabling efficient circulation and creating an environment of ample light and ventilation.

Design should also go beyond taking care of the functional requirements and create a sense of wellbeing and delight-Something that Design Matters aspires to do.

Emphasis is on making design holistic, contextual and environment friendly.

The small but enthused firm works out of Indiranagar, Bangalore.

The emphasis is on enjoying the design process as much as the end product and stresses on exploring all options before arriving at the appropriate design solution.
