Project Profile

ALTANA - The plot itself filled with lush large trees and its profile have dictated the evolution of the design concept. A careful study of the site, levels and the root structure of the trees leaves limited areas for development of the R&D center. It is this study that first drove us into demolishing the existing house along with the following reasons.
GMS - Rapid urbanization and redevelopment has led to a blanket erasure of any identifiable architectural character in Mumbai. The site for the GMS GRANDE PALLADIUM is in close proximity to a newly formed business district in the north of the city, far removed from the historic downtown zone.
ISHANYA - ‘ISHANYA’ is a utopian exposition center for building materials, sustainable technologies, and an interaction forum for multi-disciplinary design that transforms into a cultural complex at night. The exposition center is coupled with an integrated research development and consultancy cell that permits a dialogue between designers from the fields of Architecture, Engineering & the Fine Arts.
K-LAGOON - The concept echoes a deep understanding of centuries of traditional ‘Konkan’ construction techniques albeit interpreted in a contemporary syntax. The site is deeply forested and we knew that we wanted to achieve the final product with a minimum impact on the existing flora, without disturbing nature’s equilibrium.
LUPIN - The act of research and discovery is essentially an intuitive function. This complex therefore explores those elements, that to my mind, foster and inspire intuitive thought, which is the core of the creative process.

Malik Architecture

Arjun completed his undergraduate studies at the Rachana Sansad Academy of Architecture in Mumbai in 2002. He then worked with his father Kamal Malik for 2 years, after which he went to New York and received his Master of Science in Advanced Architectural Design, from the Columbia University in New York.


Through his work, he has tried to develop an idiom, that would reconcile the intellectual and intuitive aspects of architecture; that would provide a tangible link to the past without getting nostalgic; that would be technologically progressive without being experientially stunted; and that would, ultimately, speak through the intangible science of perceptual phenomena.
