Who we are

Manasaram Architects

Manasara, the celebrated saint wrote the oldest treatise on Indian Architecture Vastushastra, describing the science of design principles for buildings, from which our Studio Manasaram was born.Vastushastra is a science of architecture that combines the five elements of nature and cosmos, ultimately balancing with man and the material. We believe that to create a Space for human Existence transcending Time, it is desirable that the architect designs to cater to all the three faculties of Man - Physical, Psychological and Spiritual. Man inherited, developed and nurtured this good earth and is nourished by it. Ecological disturbances and environmental problems are posing a grave situation for humanity.

We, at Manasaram are committed to fight back climate change by promoting the use of locally abundant, easily renewable, low energymaterials. Working with natural materials in itself has been an eye opener and put us on the path back to our roots. Using what is freely available on the site, i.e, Sun, Soil, Air, Water and Space ,and materials that are within our short reach are the determining factors in our designs. Creativity is a mere result of this challenge. We strive towards making the building a living entity, responding and growing like any other living being. When this goal is met, even to a small extent, the built structure becomes a thread in the web of all life, one with nature, nature itself.
