The Purple Ink Studio is an award winning young architectural practice which believes in constantly exploring the parameters of design and blurring the boundaries between architecture, landscape and sustainability. The studio works closely on each program and situates its projects within a wider research context. We believe in an integrated approach, which is complex, generative and moves beyond the digital techniques. We are constantly engaging in the practices of ‘Regenerative Architecture’ that focuses on conservation and performance through a focused reduction on the environmental impacts of a built structure. The Studio is working on experiments which are based in the present day scenario (as prototypes) which when multiplied, would breed into a series of ‘Eco-cities’, set in the future. These experiments focus on the ‘Kilometer Zero’ concept, which strives to generate locally everything that is necessary for our living.” The underlying focus is to integrate the ideas of our architectural theories using a series of integrated/hybrid techniques to develop a new breed of regenerative architecture. The Studio was started by Akshay Heranjal and Aditi Pai in 2011, in Bengaluru.
The Purple Ink Studio since its inception in 2011 has won 4 International Awards, 7 Indian Awards and have been nominated in 5 Indian Awards. Their works have also been published widely both in print & online media in India, and internationally.
