We all have one planet to care and share, therefore aligning our GOALS with UNSDG  https://www.un.org/sustainabledevelopment/sustainable-development-goals/  , we simplify sustainability by partnering with sustainable solution providers in products, water conservation and renewable energy space.

We bring decades of residential, institutional and master-planning project experience from India and USA. We have offices in Chennai, Bangalore, Kolkata.



Design is all pervasive. It exists in the smart phone we use, the apparel we wear and the spaces we work and live in. Good design is a combination of  innovation and coordination. Every project is unique, in terms of site, space, project requirements and design goals. A project begins with a dream. We bring the tools for design as a multidisciplinary approach. We progress by aligning the project to design goals. Finally, the building or space that we create is what our client(s) continue to experience and enjoy. 


aa+d provides custom design services through master planning, concept development, building & interior design along with client specific research on sustainability and affordability. We also provide turnkey and project execution services.

Every building project is unique and detailed attention is given to each client's design challenge. In aa+d we have a step by step process, to address your requirements. We listen to the client/user requirements, preferences to amenities, inclination to sustainable design. We suggest what is possible through rigorous building code research and client requirements, to develop initial concepts. 


The approved concepts are developed into blue prints with product research, specification and itemised project document. Progress schedules are maintained and shared with all stake-holders. All project milestones are managed till project completion and handover.
