Nirmal is one of the founding principals of the firm and has graduated from the AoA, Mumbai. His engagement with the design of built environment reflects the goal of evolving an architecture which heightens the sensory experience. This is achieved by weaving an intricate web of spaces which harmonize the hierarchies of volume, scale, materiality, color, & technology, aiming to reach a synthesis whilst addressing programmatic conditions. He has also been shortlisted for the International design competition by Japan Design Foundation and has been invited to design the cover page for their magazine – design scene. He also designed the cover for – Know Thyself – a book about the Spiritual Realm in the form of a Narrative which explores the relationship between a Mystic and seekers of Truth.
AUM Architects is a collaborative architecture & design practice based in Gurgaon, New Delhi – NCR, India. AUM is the primal sound in space. Space is what we work with, what we give form and purpose to. The AUM sound reverberates through SPACE. It is the music of the SPHERES. Just like in the ancient times, where through architecture, there was a connection sought with the cosmos, here too, we try to discover through every design act of ours, the very same symbiosis with NATURE. In our experience, the key to this is through EMPATHY.
We at AUM believe that design constantly challenges the status quo and looks to innovation and cutting edge thinking to push the boundaries, thereby addressing & evolving new design paradigms. We want to be an integral part of “Design for Communities” and therefore strive to address the needs of people in a sort of “open source” approach to life. The essence of our way of designing is to address the fundamentals through intense programming, & offer solutions for creating designs that have a positive impact on the environment.
