Ar Divya Manaktola

Principal Architect, Attic Light


Ar Divya  has more than 10 years of experience working with many reputed architectural firms in India & on heritage conservation with Purcell in UK. She has a diverse portfolio starting from large scale housing to niche interiors and is competent in handling all scales of projects.

Her designs are built on the concept of layering, where elegance is paramount and is interwoven within multiple layers that highlight the authenticity of materials, design process and the overall theme of the project. The play of light and shade, texture and color, form and space, utility and detailing offer a variety of explorations and her endeavour is to make these possibilities come alive with her work. For color & texture, Sensuality & style, For rawness, robustness, & the music of all things composed. For moods and feelings, Connections and vibes. For authenticity & simplicity, Darkness & light. These words form the core emotion of her work through which she aims to make the world a happier place.

She founded the Attic Light studio in 2018 to provide niche design solutions. The studio treats architecture as a transformative process and they help clients build new structures that are rooted in context and curate spaces through bespoke design. From buildings of the British Raj to a sustainable vacation home for a private client, whether its breathing new life into a historic place or building for the future, design vision, technical expertise, attention to detail and embedded sustainability are the hallmarks of the studio’s approach. They like to push the boundaries and to excel and surprise within the constraints of time and money. The practice works with a vision where exploration and idea sharing is not seen just as an option but a principle and an opportunity through which they aim to create designs that go beyond functional and aesthetic concerns, to generate an intimate rendezvous between the space and its occupants.

Her studio’s main goal is to build the intangible and generate a sense of magic for the people experiencing the space.
