About Kamat & Rozario Architecture:

We are a multi-disciplinary design studio offering services in architecture, interior design and furniture design, started by Smruit Kamat & Lester Rozario. We have held steadfast to the importance of concept and an investigative process of design, in an increasingly complex marketplace – a world driven by appearances and fast response time. To us, it always evolves into a study of the relation of individual buildings to the environment in comprehensive terms, with particular emphasis on the complexity that exists at the urban scale. We are a young team of architects in Bangalore, collaborating with artisans, engineers and contractors, to realise our clients’ objectives in the best way possible, working together.

As a part of this design process, we strive to segue into the realms of urban ecology, and urban design and planning through each of our projects. In effect, it is also an exploration of the importance of architectural design concepts in relation to historic and contemporary issues in a constantly evolving culture. It is this wholesome perspective on design and architecture that helps us find great synergy with our clients, ranging from individual home owners to public institutions.
