Brief description

Gurjit Singh Matharoo was born in Ajmer, Rajasthan, in 1966. In 1992 after a brief stint in Ticino in Switzerland he established Matharoo Associates in Ahmedabad and also began teaching at the Centre for Environment, Planning and Technology.

Throughout its relatively short life Matharoo Associates has stood out due to its innovative concepts, out of the box thinking and high quality construction and execution in a third world scenario. Gurjit Singh Matharoo has lectured internationally and been the recipient of multiple international design awards. The recent ones being the Architectural review award emerging architecture award in 2009 and The AR house 2010 which celebrates the best house of the year.

At Matharoo Associates we believe in a clear emphasis of functionality and services, in exercising an extreme restraint whenever designing and using natural exposed materials where sunlight becomes the only embellishment as it varies and changes through the day and across the seasons. Our buildings are designed to be discovered; as one moves through them they unfold around one’s body to reveal their secrets and meanings over time and over spatial layers

Our office undertakes design work ranging from architecture, structural design and master-planning to product and automobile design, so despite our dedication to clarity we work in many different ways. We see all design disciplines as one, to remove boundaries and work with a fully combined approach. Interdisciplinary practice has become an important dimension of how we make all our designs.
