We rely not only on conventional wisdom and thumb rules, but empirically validated ideas, by leveraging global knowledge and technology.

THE STUDIO

STORY OF

WHAT STARTED AS A NICHE, SUPER SPECIALISED ARM OF AN ESTABLISHED DELHI BASED ARCHITECTURE PRACTICE, SSSA ARCHITECTS, HAS NOW GROWN INTO A LEADING CONSULTANCY FOR ARCHITECTURAL TECHNOLOGY AND DATA DRIVEN, EMPIRICAL DESIGN AND DELIVERY

FOUNDER

KINSHUK AGGARWAL

architect | urbanist | sustainability | educator

bachelor of architecture (delhi, india)

Msc. Sustainable Urbanism (the bartlett school of planning, london, U.K.)

An architect and urbanist by profession, with a masters in urban sustainability, he possesses a holistic understanding of sustainability in contemporary built environments

Following a B. Arch graduation from USAP, Delhi, he completed his masters from The Bartlett, UCL, London, in ‘Sustainable Urbanism’. Before returning home, he worked on developing sustainable growth strategies for Nacka county in Stockholm, Sweden and consulted on niche projects in central London, focusing on sustainable housing models and modes of construction using shipping containers. With a keen eye for, and global exposure in technology and sustainable practices, Kinshuk brings a differentiated, forward-looking technological leadership to the team at Studio Sustain.

 

He is also an educator, being associated with prestigious Architectural Institutions such as SPA (Delhi), USAP (Delhi), his alma mater, and is also an independent research advisor at Imperial College London, U.K. He is often invited to conferences and seminars as a speaker for emerging technologies in architecture and construction, where he enjoys sharing his experiences and vision for the AEC industry.

STUDIO FOUNDATION

Studio Sustain began as an experiment in application of modern, cutting edge design and production methods to contemporary Indian professional practice. There were no set boundaries to this experiment, the sole objective being the discovery of what to implement and how to implement, to achieve greater precision and resilience in the design of our built environment. The heart of the experiment however, was to make our built environments more sustainable, and tangibly so. 

 

Though the idea itself is much older, Studio Sustain began professional consultancy in 2018. Our young founder, armed with global exposure and experience, coupled with the zeal and skill to continuously stay updated with global best practices and tools, keeps us at the forefront of precise high performance design.

 

Over the years, using the most advanced tools available, we have evolved bespoke processes that allow us to analyze building performance to extreme empirical detail, and deliver designs with similar precision.

PERFORMANCE

WITH A FOCUS ON DELIVERING TANGIBLE, COMPREHENSIVE SUSTAINABILITY, WE HAVE DEVELOPED A PRACTICE THAT NOT ONLY CONCEPTUALIZES IDEAS OF SUSTAINABLE DESIGN AND LIVING, BUT ALSO QUANTIFIES AND OBJECTIFIES THE MODES OF DELIVERY AND EXPERIENCE OF THOSE IDEAS

STUDIO IDEOLOGY

Why is ‘sustainable’ such a bad word? Because it is more expensive? Or less convenient? Or demands compromises? Then why is it called ‘sustainable’? From our cities to our homes, why are we not able to breathe or live healthy lives if everything is alright?

 

These are some of the questions we’re attempting to answer through our work. We’re defining our own ‘sustainable’. One which is more productive, more inviting, more active, more integrated, more advanced and most of all, pleasurable to look at.

Building Performance Engineering

We rely on hard data and simulation to validate every design and intervention.

 

With expertise in globally acknowledged state of the art performance simulation programs, we are able to pre-empt the performance of proposed designs in astonishing detail.

Building Information Modelling

To deliver the conceived results, we help you plan more.

 

The AEC industry around the world is moving from 2D CAD based design delivery to BIM based design and project delivery. With our architectural engineering team, you can make your project future proof and up to global performance standards.

DESIGN CONCEPTION

We provide design performance consulting and high performance solutions for your design. From energy consumption, day lighting, ventilation all the way to carbon emissions, embodied energy, life cycle assessment, et. al., we are empirically validating every metric to achieve the most ambitious performance targets.

DESIGN DEVELOPMENT

Develop your project to the very last detail through a virtual building construction on our BIM platform. Move from “as per site” construction coordination to “as per design” execution, thereby exponentially enhancing efficiency, precision and quality. Every last piece of piping, bend, fitting and fixture is accounted for, leaving no space for arbitrary spontaneous design decisions.

DESIGN EXECUTION

Executing your projects using the most sophisticated B.I.M. and cloud management suites, allows you to plan construction of every building to optimum specifications, reducing wastage, construction time and thereby cost, while maintaining control over every aspect of the building while it is under construction.
