• Creating a retail showroom building in a tightly packed industrial estate, time constraint of 9 months, and very high aspirations of the client, became an interesting design proposition. The end product is a four storey showroom, with a glass block facade; of course lit brilliantly at night with the programmable colorful lights. Each floor in the interiors has a different graphical theme for the ceiling and the light integration corresponding to the kind of display goods for each floor.
Being in the trade of furniture and lifestyle products, I come across a number of design professionals. Honestly, Snehalbhai is one of the best architects I have met. His unassuming and simple nature, highly creative design ideas and abundance of practical knowledge makes him a very good architect. Behind his success, the contribution of his team is also very important. EssTeam has some excellent team members who are hardworking, sincere and also good at design. I know for sure that EssTeam is going to go only one way – ‘UP’, however, there are a few areas where there is scope of improvement for even better results.
