PROFILE

Saransh is an architectural partnership firm, based in Ahmedabad, India; operating in the fields of architecture, planning and interior design. The firm was established in 1990 by the two founders Manish and Malini Doshi, both of whom are architects, graduated from CEPT University. Saransh currently employs a full-time staff of 13 architects and interior designers, and has constant collaborations with a number of consulting agencies of other associated fields, which help us secure a precise execution of the assignment at hand.

With the addition of Malay Doshi as a partner in the firm, the exploration of form and material has become the focus of our projects. Being a freshly graduated architect from CEPT University, he adds to the firm changing along with the world around it, by bringing discussions like sustainability and impacts of the project on a larger context, to the table.

APPROACH

Saransh’s design approach revolves around the need for inclusivity in the contemporary age. Our design approach has two layers to it: first, understanding the requirements of the clients and coming up with a detailed brief, and second, heading into conceptualising, designing and detailing based on those requirements. This approach allows a great amount of variation in our design and helps create different identities for similar project types.

Another important aspect of our design philosophy is to keep project costs within the budget of the client, without compromises in design. This attitude has given us a very promising response from all our clients and that in turn has made us more confident to explore creative and challenging fronts.

At Saransh, we believe that Indian mass architecture could take a turn towards the better by giving that extra thought to the anthropometrics of each individual of this enormous country. Each project that addresses the mass adheres to this ideology of providing sufficient freedom to an individual to mould their lives around, even in the smallest of possible budgets. It isn’t always about what is the most iconic, but rather what is the most comfortable in India’s rapidly growing cities. This freedom includes uninterrupted space and ample light which the user can then occupy as per their individual need. Whereas, while zooming in to a smaller scale, the utmost attention is given to detail. The beauty lies in how one material touches another and if done correctly at that minute scale, we believe the entire project, regardless of its size, will turn out well.
