AADI Design is an interdisciplinary studio based in Pune. The brainchild of two Los Angeles exports, the firm is founded by an architect and an automobile designer.
We have a repertoire of architecture, interior, furniture, product, art, graphic and exhibition. We are a design locus with 'user happiness' at its core. Bringing together our diverse academic backgrounds, we offer beautiful and unique designs combining our LA sensibilities with our 'Desi' roots.
Our process for architecture and interior design is unique. We initiate our projects in 3D, providing clients with an enhanced comprehension of the space. This facilitates the visualization of materials and textures through virtual walk-throughs, expediting the decision-making process collaboratively with the client.
