Archohm is a one stop shop, where a city and a chair are being designed simultaneously under one roof. A deliberate attempt has been made to work across diverse scales in order to focus thoroughly on ‘design’.
Archohm is a design studio-offering consultancy for architecture, urban design, interiors, landscape and product design. Spanning across different fields and scales of design, the practice works on infrastructure, township, toll plaza, commercial, retail, institutional, hospitality, corporate, product and residential commissions. Archohm also renders design engineering services. Following its inception in 1999 in india by the virtue of a design competition coupled with an affinity for a cross-cultural dialogue and global exposure on design, archohm launched its studio in the netherlands in 2002 and established an office in libya in 2009 for its middle east operations. True to the vision of design discovery and exposure, through its various activities such as the archoforum, archometer, archotour and initiatives like zolijns, design factory india, the design village and gomaads, archohmendeavors to proliferate local and global design communities.
Archohm aims to build architecture that is climatically and contextually relevant. The studio’s design philosophy has been one that creates a dialogue of pure functional forms that are exaggerated by the use of individual materials. This interesting co-existence and conversation of various materials is utilized in all projects to create responsive and responsible architecture. All design projects sit as examples of the forward-looking indian contemporary aesthetic, both in materiality and functionality. Archohm therefore, stands for a young, mad and fun approach to spatiality, that employs a play of light, volumes and materials.
Numerous awards and accolades for its own design studio and other projects have encouraged archohm to constantly strive to raise the bar and further evolve as a design practice.
