ABOUT US

KIPA from its inception in 1986, has been in the process of achieving perfection in design and striving to achieve a “Total Environment” with its innovative and modernistic design approach. KIPA believes in designing buildings in an overall context of the urban environment, site, topography and climate.

 

The Design Principle is based on consciously creating spaces and forms to relate them to the users requirement. We like our architecture to have personality – a personality that helps to establish a dialogue with the environment and the city fabric. We plan responsive solutions that cater to them. Our design evolves out of a diverse thought processes that encompass your needs, budget, building technologies and aesthetics. Each project poses new challenges for us and brings forth new concepts that engage the senses of the user and observer. The psychology of the client is an integral part of the building design. Besides helping shape the space, it enriches the experience within them. The result is a synthesis between functionality and aesthetics. We see design as a poem – a communicative link between us and the user. At KIPA we call it expressive architecture.

 

The Objective is to deliver the goods in time and keeping up to the commitments and schedules. There is a constant endeavor in trying to explore new design principles, structural systems and integrating services to achieve economy, ease and speed in construction. The design process does not end with the completion of the building, the design team, often goes back to the drawing and models, reworking and analyzing them as sources of inspiration and the basis for generation of new designs.
