Architecture, like all organisms in nature, is assured of survival only through its continued adaptability to often-changing and challenging conditions, such as those presented by the geography of the site, project types and client requirements. The search for alternatives in the field of architecture and sustainable development is a continuous journey.
Drawing deep inspiration and motivation from the timeless philosophy and architectural genius of sustainable-building pioneer architect Laurie Baker, Spaceart was founded by architects Vinod Cyriac and Anita Choudhuri in the year of 1997 at Calicut.
It has been Spaceart’s endeavour ever since to bring together like-minded individuals to translate homesteads that blend into their surroundings. Pondering upon the lift heights of human achievement, one marvels at the simplicity that is common to them all. A simplicity that distinguishes the incomparable from the merely ordinary. The simplicity that so wondrously pervades nature, throughout its breadth and majesty. It is the simplicity of a dwelling embraced by the nature that we, at Spaceart, ever strive to capture in its entirety. The journey continues to address the needs of society by understanding the roots and origins of our creation. Our efforts in housing and sustainable communities have been unique in its emphasis on traditions, crafts and intrinsic details. A contemporary interpretation of traditional value systems and architectural vocabulary is critical in our journey in search of meaningful and sustainable building environments.
"I have my own principles, which I am unwilling to abandon.
I dislike falsehood and deceit. A building should be truthful."
