Ours is a legacy of challenging both architectural typologies, and the role of an architect.
Founded in 1969, VA has pioneered architectural benchmarks that shape the way people live and work in urban India. Led by our understanding of the transformative power of design, our research-driven process has resulted in iconic buildings that have set the standard for their typologies in this country.
VA started as an architectural practice that gained recognition for Real Estate and R&D projects. Over the years, we have gone from strength to strength; diversifying into multiple sectors and geographies, spanning complex research and development facilities, manufacturing units and IT parks, to public institutions and real estate, creating some of the benchmarks for their typologies in India.
