Company Profile
Chitra Vishwanath architects begun in 1990 happened due to nothing more than serendipity…a qualified architect wanting to work on one’s own and rapid changes in the scenario of house building in Indian housing market. The location for all this was the young vibrant city of Bangalore–a very open and forward looking society. Begun as a single person practise which provided economical solutions with a very dedicated sense of integrity in all financial dealings, grew to a 20 member dedicated ecological solution provider with the same integrity and ethics in place.

Types of projects undertaken
Earth in the form of compressed stabilized blocks and stabilized rammed earth is used for load bearing structure, arches, vaults and domes. Through the years various players have contributed to the achievements of the numerous buildings forming a large team capable of delivering a high quality construction within the respected budget and timeframe. Beside the use of stabilized earth, such alternative systems and energies are used: wastewater treatment system, grey water recycling system, rainwater harvesting, solar and wind energy generation system. They are designed and integrated to complete buildings as sustainable systems – economically, socially and ecologically. These buildings can attract local plants and birds, so as to create unique and comfortable spaces.

chitra vishwanath-001About the designer
Chitra Vishwanath Architects is a design firm based in Bangalore, India, focusing on ecology and architecture. The practice started in 1991 and along the way, various architects have joined and contributed in projects throughout India and Africa. The philosophy followed is to employ local resources in an optimized way, to plan considering the natural elements, passively and actively, and to render the social impact of construction positive, improving lifestyle quality of both, the doers and the users. As part of the range of resources used, “mud” is a major component since it is well suited for local conditions, is relatively labor intensive and locally available.
