WE are an Activist Architecture firm of Radical Listeners.
We are challenging traditional stereotypes to deliver advice, design interventions and full architectural services to NGO, Developers and Governments early in the design process to our clients.
Our approach is holistic, surgical and of minimal disruption that allows the day-to-day functioning for existing buildings and forge the maverick path for the new buildings for our tomorrow and generations.
Led by Sassy Designer and Building Systems Satpal Kaur, a thought leader with over a decade of experience implementing cutting edge technologies while designing buildings. Branded as a Turbanista and a High Performance Building Activist because of her passion for data and building science in architecture. She was the recipient of the 40 Under 40 Award by Building Design+Construction. A believer in holistically integrating clients to actively become part of the sustainable revolution pursuing comfortable and healthy living environments.
Satpal comes from a heritage crossing three continents of builders and carpenters who were the first service providers for their communities up rooting from the five rivers of Punjab, Pre partitioned India, to British controlled Kenya, to the land of the Queen, UK and now residing in the USA. Traces of their hands have been part of changes in history leaving memories and structures behind. She was the first person in my entire extended family to ever go to University and maybe it was kismet that I had to do Architecture.
This led to Satpal’s unscripted path.
It is with this resilience and vision we saw building as an extension of the human skin seeking comfort, equilibrium & creativity as one. We are not checkboxes and neither should buildings be one.
We embrace and thrive on change to search for alternatives for Future Proofing.
We are a group of critical thinkers and we believe the Justice Economy is real where the social impact stories are translated to visions of space to fill the complex void to explore and generate unconventional partnerships. Creating,connecting the dots of data to mapping and inventing the solutions ranging from very detailed to large scale that champions for people, the environment and what we believe.
Please contact us to discuss ideas, a memory, a space and city that will sustain to tell the stories for the future generation through projects or collaborations.
