More than spatial design, it is the experience of learning from one another and sometimes finding prospective clients amongst friends that stand out more. The planning accommodates almost 90 members, with convenient discussion rooms, call/printer rooms to facilitate work.
One of the features we’ve incorporated is mirrored glass walls on either side of the walkway. This creates an illusion of an infinite expanse , also making the space feel larger. The glass and gypsum walls have been deliberately left untreated. The space is meant to grow and develop over the years according to the users taste.

Drawing Hands Studio
Drawing Hands Studio is a design practice begun in 2015 in Chennai, India.
It has been initiated at a time when many such young, like-minded architects and designers in the city are looking to make a difference to their environment. Minimal and context – driven design defines our approach. Functional aesthetics, addressing multiple challenges with a single relevant solution is what we aim to achieve through design. We let ourselves evolve and allow the context to generate the design that makes the most sense for the specific scenario. We deal with architecture, interiors and furniture design.
