After moving to India in 2010, she founded Amoeba Design with her husband Satyajeet Patwardhan in 2012. Amoeba Design is inspired by the concept of Wabi-sabi, an intuitive way of living that encourages us to celebrate the beauty of a naturally imperfect world and aim to manifest this approach in all our projects. We also focus on creating ecological, culturally specific and contemporary built environments. As a team of internationally trained architects, we are able to bring global insights and best practices to our buildings. We have real passion to create environments that are rich in material and texture. We focus a lot on light, volume and materials, but always sought opportunities to change conventional thinking. The name amoeba itself comes from the germ of being true to oneself without being stuck in a particular image, allowing...constant change!”
