We shape our buildings; thereafter they shape us. Winston Churchill

Founded in 2000, studio archohm is a leading Indian architecture and design firm, known for its versatile and multifaceted work and out-of-the-box innovations in design. Both as a physical and a philosophical place, through its hardware and software, archohm represents a dialogue, a collage, of materials, forms, feelings, functions and inspirations. And their acclaimed studio in NCR of Delhi, c28c, reflects their design ethos.

In this book, studio archohm demonstrates how c28c was conceived with a first principle approach to ensure an effective and efficient architectural solution. From concept to construction, every detail was dwelled upon so as to express and exhibit the environment-conscious philosophy of the office. A live canvas, the exhibit of materials, colors, textures and play of forms, make the studio a three-dimensional design laboratory and library.

This one-of-a-kind book shows how their architecture is conceived through volumes and forms, materials and light. It vividly narrates how they met challenges head-on, resolved the many labyrinthine issues and took on the responsibility of placing the building s architecture and its attitude in a contemporary Indian context. It shares the story of a gratifying journey of the design process and demonstrates how life can be lived through design.

Author Bio: Sourabh Gupta is the founder of studio archohm. He attended the esteemed School of Architecture, CEPT University in Ahmedabad, India and graduated magna cum laude. With the insight provided by the best in the realm of architecture there, coupled with a stint at the acclaimed architecture faculty at the Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands, and most importantly, propelled by a compulsive need to design, travel and explore, Sourabh started his professional practice, studio archohm.
