The practice of SHANKAR NARAYAN ARCHITECTS was started in 1988 by G.SHANKAR NARAYAN as an individual taking up residential projects. right from the beginning the practice was known for its innovative design, cos effective and eco sensitive techniques of construction, professionalism and financial integrity. over the years these values have not changed, but we have grown into one of the most recognized and respected architectural practices in Hyderabad. Today we handle projects varying from campus designs, software facilities, mass housing and corporate interiors right down to individual residences. We have deliberately resisted specialization in any one genere of buildings because, as architects we feel it is our mandate to deal with human shelter in the largest sense of the term. We relish innovation and fashion our designs after thinking deeply about the profile and the psyche of the user. We avoid gimmicky architecture and rely on the fundamentals of scale, proportion, light and honest use of materials to create spaces and forms in which man feels an eternal sence og belonging.
