About US

Established in 2011 with the philosophies of two individuals, The Purple Ink Studio is a multifaceted architecture design practice based out of Bengaluru. Aditi and Akshay came together from different architectural backgrounds, one being extremely rational, aesthetic yet responsive and the other based on the strong retort to nature. Over years, the studio has grown into a Highly Collaborative Practice, with a horizontal organizational structure led by a core group of Design Associates.

Our Practice passionately believes in a Layered, Contextual Approach, which is Experimental in Nature. With varied building typologies and scales in our platter, we explore alternate solutions in redefining paradigms of architecture and envisaging a change, project-by- project.

Over years, we are consciously engaged in designs that look at Blurring the boundaries between architecture & landscape, often calling it ‘Architecture for Landscape’.

In less than a decade, the studio has gained recognition worldwide by winning numerous National & International Honors. The works of The Purple Ink Studio is also extensively published all over the world both in print & online. The Studio has won 7 International Awards, 16 Indian Awards and 15 Shortlists in the last 9 years since their inception. We won the most coveted ‘Best Practice in India of 2016’ award from TRENDS EXCELLENCE AWARDS, WADE Asia 2017 Young Architect of the Year, PERSPECTIVE 40under40 ASIA in Hongkong - Listed as one of the 40 creative architects in Asia under the age of 40 who will shape the design world in the decades to come and as the Top 50 Next Gen Architects who will shape India, amongst other numerous National & International Honors.
