Saransh is an architectural partnership studio based in Ahmedabad, India, operating in the fields of architecture, planning and interior design. The studio was founded in 1994 by Manish and Malini Doshi – architects, and alumni of CEPT University. Saransh currently employs a full-time staff of 16 architects and interior designers, in addition to long-standing collaborative relationships with a number of consultants and agencies from allied fields; together, these teams help us achieve a precise execution of the assignment at hand.
Saransh is the Hindi term for ‘summary’. At Saransh, we believe that good design follows strong concepts, and concepts evolve as cohesive responses to multiple factors. Our design approach has two layers to it: firstly, understanding the requirements of the clients and devising a programme that addresses them; and secondly, conceptualising and detailing in line with those requirements. As a result, our design vocabulary is diverse, contextual and driven by client’s needs with each of our works maintaining a distinct identity despite overlap in typology. Saransh especially focusses on economic and material sustainability, keeping the project cost low and optimising available resources to stay true to the original design intent.
With the addition of Kaveesha Shah, Malay Doshi, Neel Jain, and Purvi Tank we are now stepping into the next phase of our practice – expanding, diversifying and streamlining in tune with the sensibilities and requirements of a rapidly expanding clientele. Saransh – under the ambit of its Architecture, Design, Foundation, Labs and Urbanism domains – is addressing the larger concerns of urban impact and environmental sustainability through the newer additions to its extensive portfolio.
