She spend a year as an Associate Architect handling multi-dwelling residential projects, residences, hospitals, and commercial projects at Chandramohan Associates, Trivandrum before settling down in Kochi.

Varsha co-founded Studio Vista Architects in 2018, with partners Ar. Shariga Ravi who is a former colleague, and Ar. Anupama Nandakumar, a former classmate at CEPT University. Together as an all-women power-packed team, they approach every project with a zeal, each bringing their unique traits into the design development. They believe that there is no "one-fits-all" solution to every design. For them, their design development starts from the very first meeting with their clients. They make it a point to listen to them – their story, their background, their lifestyle, and their needs. Together with the understanding of the clients and a study of the context, the design development is a passionate experience of bouncing ideas and breaking down the needs and characteristics of the occupants and attempting to produce something that reflects them in every respect. Macaw’s Nest (submitted entry for WADE Awards) is one such project.
