Founder & Chief Architect: Ronak Hingarh
M'Arch: Rhode Island School of Design, U.S.A. 2016
The foundation at Ronak Hingarh Designs is born out of one simple thought- to create spaces that touch the soul. Now, how did I get to that? Well, taking you a little back in time… when I was a mere child, I drew a lot! I drew my surroundings; built and natural environment. Little did I know at the time that I was actually documenting my experiences of spaces and events by drawing the various elements that make them up. Those drawings turned to thoughtful sketches and then designs; only these were backed by a narrative that spoke with no words. Riveted by creating a juxtaposition between stories and designs… This entire process led me to where I am today-founder and principal at my design firm-Ronak Hingarh Architecture + Designs.
Indeed, a formal education as an architect (M'Arch) at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), USA, gave me my main instinct- to focus on academic and community engagement as this allows me to stay grounded and connected with fresh minds and enthusiastic students. Hence, I shuffle between leading my design firm and teaching at design schools across Mumbai.
Established in 2018, I lead a team of young, passionate, and dedicated designers at a multidimensional Architectural and design office. Together, we bring fresh perspective and energy to our projects of varied nature. We are not bound by industry conventions and we work across various scales tackling master planning, building architectural and interior planning and design, and custom one-of-a-kind furniture pieces.
My body of work reflects an overarching belief in weaving unforgettable experiences that echo soulful stories through generating unique stories and concepts for the projects, meticulous planning, and is backed by extensive research and investigation.
