we are passionate about

The environment and its sustainability. And this is mirrored in the collaborative, inclusive and participative work at architecture t, as we design, build, work with community and experience the spaces we create. Simplicity, contemporary, minimilist, hands-on, interactive and an intimacy with nature are tenets we try to adopt in all our work.

 

collaborations

team

My tryst with collaborations first began in 2000 and the model was simple and straight forward: professional integrity and equal monetary benefits! With my recent plunge into mentoring college students, social architecture and community work and the move to a larger and more central work space, I have been able to experiment with the next level of professionalism- collaborations, delegation and cooperative leadership, giving me the needed space to devote to more passions! My travel experiences across the globe and work opportunities with the local community have also taught me two important lessons that I’m currently experimenting with and enjoying the benefits of :  1. the art of delegation and 2. Cooperative leadership.
