About US

The purple ink studio is a multiple award winning practice in Bengaluru, which was started in 2011 with the ideas of two individuals who strongly believed in their respective design concepts and had nurtured the feeling over the past couple of years. The Studio won the most coveted ‘Best Practice in India of 2016’ award from TRENDS EXCELLENCE AWARDS for Architecture & Design and have also been listed in the PERSPECTIVE 40under40 ASIA and as the Top 50 Next Gen Architects who will shape India, amongst other numerous National & International Honors.

Considering that both Aditi and Akshay came from different architectural backgrounds, one being extremely rational, aesthetic yet responsive and the other that is based on strong responses to nature and inclusion of natural elements in design, the studio has had passionate influences of both and sees a continuous evolution in exploring the best of both worlds.

The studio believes in constantly exploring the parameters of design and blurring the boundaries between architecture, landscape , interiors and sustainability.
