Synthesis is a New Delhi Based architecture and interior design firm specialised in innovative work rooted with rationalist and humanist ideals. The controlled scale of the firm allows agility and adaptability to all projects while preserving uncommon attention to detail in all aspects of the process – from the initial real-estate and planning issues, through construction supervision, till final staging of the decor.
Studio principal, Parvez Alam (B.Arch | Masters, University of Glasgow, UK) & Sachi Gupta (B.Arch) apply problem-solving methodology, rejecting the formulaic and conventional methods . An imposed style or agenda never drives the design process; the work is reality based. Ultimately, the final product is a thorough reasoned , an appropriate response to the site, well programmed in functions, including the various constraints that ultimately inform and generate the design.
In all residential, commercial, and retail projects our office has continued to demonstrate the logic ,that the pragmatic and functional needn’t be dry and soulless. Rather, it can coexist with aesthetic beauty, and do so without great expense. Many of our projects have overcome significant budget constraints, exploiting inexpensive and readily available materials and techniques, used in new ways, towards innovative solutions.
Our projects also start from small, uninspiring spaces, posing technical difficulties with zoning, building codes, structural issues, or just not enough area . Unlike many firms who routinely reject such small, difficult, and less profitable projects, we have taken these “nothing” spaces and turned them into “spectacular something”. Resistance has continually embraced these challenges and gained valuable experience that is applicable to larger, more complex, and more costly projects as well.
This has put us in an almost unique position in Delhi/ NCR to offer high-level design and service with incredible value.
