MEET THE DESIGNER
Managing Partner I Architect and Interior Designer
After graduating in Bachelor of Architecture from C.S.I.I.T, Hyderabad, Mitali interned with Shilpa Sindoor Architects, Bengaluru, under the guidance of Architects Shankar Kanade and Navnath Kanade. She later worked with Aparna Karve Design Consultants in Hyderabad until 2014 working on several residential and institutional projects and even got the opportunity to work on the prestigious Sound and Light Show at Ross island Andamans.
“I have always been fascinated and passionate about design and becoming an architect was always on the cards for me. My design foundation is based on the belief of 'Less is More'.
The joy of transforming a space from nothing to something sacred to someone is what drives me to keep designing. Simplicity and functionality blended with character, quirk and eclecticism is what I try to achieve. Design is all around us, we have to learn from it, try and improve upon it and know what needs to stand out and what needs to blend in.” – Mitali
