Images

KA Connect is a quarterly snapshot of our practice which includes recently completed projects, ideas emerging from the studio and critical issues on the built environment that concern us.In this issue we are showcasing Godrej Elements which is a large residential project in Hinjewadi, Pune for Godrej Properties. The project comprising of 1300 units was recently completed and residents have moved in. We are proud to have successfully completed a project of this size under challenging market conditions. The emphasis of the project was on creating a vibrant and dynamic public realm. Apart from the efficiency of the apartment plans, the quality of public spaces is a critical design element catering to the diverse group of occupants.

We are also happy to announce that in March 2022, Kapadia Associates completes 30 years. This is indeed a proud moment for us. Over the last thirty years we have grown substantially, both in terms of our team and the size and diversity of projects. For us this has been a significant challenge of growing up.

This is also a chance to reflect on the past and look forward to future challenges. We would sincerely like to thank our clients who have truly supported us and continue to trust us with new assignments.

We would appreciate any feedback and words of encouragement as we move forward on this journey.

Stay safe and healthy!
