Founder & Chief Architect: Ronak Hingarh
M'Arch: Rhode Island School of Design, U.S.A. 2016
From an early age, Ronak Hingarh was captivated by the mysteries of nature and human anatomy and tried to capture their vivid forms, proportions, and geometries on paper. These drawings later started demonstrating thoughtful engagements between art and science, eventually leading to spatial compositions and designs that spoke for themselves.
His passion for a multidisciplinary approach to designing led him to pursue a Masters degree in Architecture at the prestigious Rhode Island School of Design in the USA. Here he developed various techniques and unique design processes and design languages that emerged by blending ceramics, textiles, and architecture! He was also awarded the RISDgraduates travel award to research bamboo architecture in South America.
Prior to founding his design studio, Ronak trained under industry pioneers such as BVDoshi in Ahmedabad, Fernando Menis in Tenerife, Spain, Ultramoderne in the USA, and Hunker Architects in Martha's Vineyard, USA. His time and experience living and working abroad have greatly influenced his design sensibilities and allowed him to bring an international outlook to his work.
Building on his experiences and knowledge, Ronak has also taken on the role of an educator since 2016, sharing his expertise by teaching and mentoring students at prestigious universities such as Rhode Island School of Design, ISDI School of Design & Innovation, NMIMS (Balwant Sheth School of Architecture + Center of Interior Environment and Design)& Raffles Design International. This opportunity allows him to stay engaged with young and enthusiastic students, fostering connections with young minds and inspiring them with his knowledge and passion.
Ronak's love for the mountains and natural environment is reflected in his work. In his free time, he enjoys backpacking and mountain climbing through lesser-known offbeat locations in and outside India.
