Ar Urvi Shah

Principal Architect, TRAANSPACE


Traanspace is a constantly evolving design practice, established in the year 2009 in Vadodara with the aim of creating original and timeless designs.

Founder and Principal Architect Urvi Shah holds a Bachelor’s Degree of Architecture from the most renowned college, The Maharaja Sayajirao University. A gold medallist of the final year, she made sure of adding more feathers to her profession since then. Commendable in her approach towards the profession, she single headedly runs an office of about 12-15 people, who work on projects of various scales. Having worked on more than 200 projects spread over various genres ranging from bungalows, multi-dwelling, farm houses, weekend homes to commercial, retail and interior, the sole interest of the company lay in exploring fresh ideas by permeating into the details of functionality well balanced with aesthetics.

The firm thrives by experimenting beyond conventionalism and constantly pushing their limits. They explore the possibilities in building unusual illustrations in architecture on a very simple note. Professional relations with clients have grown healthy over the years owing to trust and close working environs. This proves as a successful and smooth job of every project that we work on. Individual projects are allotted to the most relevant project teams in the office for active and collective designing. Proper management amongst designers, site coordinators, agencies on site and the client result in smooth execution leading to incomparable outcomes. A very harmonic and tactile design is thus achieved at the end of each task. Standing tall to bag more feathers to the growing success hat of the firm, our work is often published in architectural and interior design magazines. DESIGN PHILOSOPHY Rudimentary factors matter the most to us. Aspects like client brief, context and constraints act as foremost motivation for us. Designing enlivened spaces which respond to the above criteria is what we thrive for.

The motto “Less is more” is unfailing in our designs actualised by bold and straight lines. Believers of minimalism and sheer contemporary designs, the firm prospers in designing in detail. Driven by inspirations from traditional concepts, craft and local materials, our work is a fine mix of customary details in contemporary spaces. Laid on the foundations of functionality, form and aesthetics play a controlled role. Henceforth are produced some stunning yet dramatic spaces. Having based in a tropical environment, our architecture is precisely climate sensitive and has a constant thought of built form befitting in the context. Smooth methods have blurred the boundaries between the branches of architecture, interior design, landscape detailing, furniture and lighting designs in our practise. Versatile and eclectic outcome are derived in various projects, yet the style of our practice has never failed to be reflected. WORK ENVIRONMENT A platform for the designers to work with no bars and make professional friends is what Traanspace office mirrors. Each designer is given opportunities to work on all phases of the process which includes considerations like technology, climate, site conditions, materials and finishes. Our small knit family-like design team allows room for casual interaction that supports work environment. A systematic pattern is adapted here that allows everyone to design with standards as they explore their freedom. This also lets a new employee gel well in the routine life of Traanspace.
