Sifti Design Studio was founded by a group of young professional architects in the year 2018. After working in collaboration on various projects of different scales in Delhi for 3 years, we decided to officially establish our firm in the city of Amritsar. Our aim is to make creative designs and build projects which are close to nature, aid in creating a better living environment for people, and contribute to changing the outlook of Indian residents about the architectural landscape of the country. Through our curated architectural works, we wish to create a social image that promotes the exploration of novel and unique solutions for the different construction conditions existing in our country.
Through an iterative design process, the firm aims to address 4 principles: creativity, sustainability, efficiency, and significance. By approaching the design problem creatively we intend to produce simple but distinctive works translated through architectural form, spatial structure, material, and spatial technology. Attempting to bring light in mystical ways by playing with the volume and geometry of the built form, we try to create a unique experience for the users visiting our building. Our occupant-centric design approach tries to create awareness towards designing buildings that are sustainable. Addressing the surrounding environment, Weather conditions, and material availability we intend to create spaces for users which provide comfort and an area for enjoying their surroundings. With regard to the efficiency of the built environment, we understand the economic and locational constraints of the project and actively take on the challenge to develop alternative effective solutions to meet our envisioned design. Finally, The team also understands and constantly contemplates the significance of the designed projects on the urban fabric of the locality and the city as a whole.
In the Peri-Urban area of Amritsar, several plotted housing developments have emerged with standard planning schemes ie. plots for row housing placed on both sides of a 6m wide road while premium plots are given frontage of parks. Through the following section, we would like to show how through our design approach and principles we have designed houses for this scheme. The varying designs are a result of our specific design briefs created through extensive discussions with the clients and the principles that SIFTI design studio imbibes.
