Piyusha, aged 30-Design consultant-interiors, architecture & landscape, is a firm believer in these words.
Her love for the built form sparked during visits to design studios back home, in India. The more she learnt, the more intrigued she was in her early school years. During architecture school, Piyusha showed immense caliber in the design subject & graduated successfully with a gold medal from the Pune University in 2012.
Early milestone was achieved with an award from NDTV for the best design of the year to her innovative project-Exploratory science learning centre in 2013.The award was received at a national level & instilled confidence in her to excel in the professional field.
After a brief stint as junior architect at Design Concepts,Dubai; where she was appreciated for her sincerity & hard work on mall projects, she joined Plural architecture & Designs in 2013.Wherein, opportunities came to apply& test different design ideologies from paper to site on largely high end residential, healthcare& commercial hospitality projects.
As her role grew & she got involved in handing projects individually, conversing with clients, understanding efficient use of resources, she self-learnt various software tools & taught them to the team to boost productivity at the workplace-gaining the teams respect & also clients trust for timely delivery of projects. While doing so she attempted to keep the design crux intact while handling complex projects as efficiently as possible.For this, she also received immense appreciation from the management & her clients.
The healthcare projects she worked on were nominated for MENA region healthcare awards.
She was also invited by DYPSOA, Pune to talk about her architectural projects & mentor the students there.This inspired her to teach during the weekends for architectural entrance exams & software training.Success, for her,is in her students getting admissions in their desired colleges & successfully using design tools for their projects& she continues to teach & mentor in parallel to her ongoing practice.
Five years later, she moved on to join U+A-a well-known international firm as Project Architect.

Piyusha enjoys collaborative working to achieve creative results & loves solving puzzles that construction projects are all about.She brings to the table sound technical knowledge,innovation in design & good overall understanding of the processes & resources. Her project stories generally start with a strong concept & multi-level thought process involving solutions that create something meaningful-functionally & aesthetically. Each detail is then a contribution to making the final product a manifestation of the enhanced original idea. She believes, the design process although complex needs to be first simplified in the mind &then the story unravels itself flawlessly.
It does not matter if the subject that needs to be designed is a building,land,furniture or an accessory, the aspect of storytelling is something that will always excite & motivate her to keep doing better.
