What We Do
- Feasibility Study
It is generally executed for large-scale projects that include commercial projects, multi-tower apartment complexes,hotel projects, convention centers, and mixed-use developments. Feasibility study begins with a thorough visual analysis of the site to analyze its potential. Subsequently, we craft an architectural project report, commercial project report, and feasible project options based on the climatological study, client’s requirements, and other elements that could influence the design.
- Architectural Design
The architectural design process begins by planning a layout of the site, which is followed by a detailed discussion with the client to finalize the area configuration statement. Our final civil construction document includes all the relevant aspects such as pre construction drawings, structural drawing integration, masonry plans, and section elevation, joinery drawing, etc. We possess a staunch expertise that enables us to offer architectural guidance for residence design,commercial project design, campus design, retail buildings design, farmhouse design, factory design, hospital design, etc. Our energy-efficient building designs andgreen building designs havegarnered recognition and accolades from our clients and the general public alike.
- Interior Design
Our interior design process starts with an analysis of the existing space after which, we prepare a zoning plan based on the client’s designing requirements. Consecutively, we organize a concept design document and tender package for the interiors which includes all the intricate details of the project. From residence interior design, clubhouse interior design, commercial interior design, to art gallery interior design,banquet hall interior design, convention center interior design, and business hotel interior design, our team of professionals have efficiently delivered innovative concepts to a wide spectrum of clients.
- Landscape Design
In landscape design, we execute an extensive land survey to evaluate the site and the potential it holds. Following that, our team prepares a concept design that centers on integrating innovative and personalized elements and design to accentuate the landscape. Our landscape design services encompass tropical landscape design, residence landscape design, commercial landscape design, villa landscape design, resort landscape design, hotel landscape design, etc.
- Master Planning
A comprehensive survey study of the locality is conducted which is followed by a proper SWAT analysis of the periphery and the surroundings in order to evaluate the maximum output that can be generated from the site. Post that, our planning experts prepare a master plan and execute zoning. At S Squared Architects we have prepared township master plans, campus plans and villa project designs.
Shapes and shades. Angles and lines. Contours and colours. Balance and space…elements we love to explore and master in our line of work. Constantly evolving with the times and trends to create designs that reflect class and refinement, we like to follow a client-centric approach that blends your tastes with our expertise. We infuse ingenuity, inspiration and innovation to render a design like no other, just for you.
