The above word is quite frequently used in growing businesses, and more particularity in businesses where the baton is being handed over from the founders to the next generation. This exactly was being done in two organisations in the year 2010 – Siddhivinayak Groups and VK:a architecture.
On a business tour, is where I meet this totally dedicated and always laughing architect worked in London, named Hrishikesh Kulkarni.
For a company like mine, which is in business for the last 30 years, working with only selected few architects, it was a difficult task to give a project to someone new, even though Arch. Vishwas Kulkarni comes with a lot of vishwas, and was already a name to reckon with in the city of Pune. This is where I again say that Transition played a key role. Where I wanted to try younger architects with like-minded attitude and fresh ideas; and this is where Hrishikesh and me hit off from the word go.
It’s been a fabulous journey with him so far on the personal and the professional front. The team that he has built, and the professionalism that they bring to the table, has by far raised the bar of Architecture in the city.
With VK:a, one thing clear in their approach is that, it is not just design that matters in a project but that a lot of small details are needed. To name a few, VK:a starts planning a project by keeping the ultimate end-user in mind. The needs of these users are always kept on high priority.
Every team member of the firm demonstrates the same commitment to the projects they handle. I wish them another fabulous 50 years of changing the landscape of every city they are working in .
