“Great design effortlessly enhances well-being, experiences, and aspirations of people. It is not prescriptive, it is personal, it allows for evolution so that spaces can adapt as user needs change.”

Passionate about urban and social aspects of design, Chhavi believes architecture has the power to help communities flourish in their own cultural context. She champions a holistic approach to urban issues through collaborative engagement in projects, academics, and research. Chhavi’s projects range from phased institutional master plans to dynamic, large-scale urban destinations. Bringing in a comprehensive perspective to design, she moves from macro to micro scales in projects with ease. A keen listener with a thoughtful voice, Chhavi uses her skills to actively engage in dialogue and uncover informed, creative solutions to make meaningful design a priority. Chhavi is a true diplomat and problem solver, especially adept at leveraging the knowledge and experience of the team—client, consultants, and contractors—to serve the project’s best interest.
