Case Design

Based in Mumbai with projects in India, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, Case Design is an architecture and design practice committed to exploring the design process through acts of making.

We believe that objects and spaces deeply impact our relationship with the world around us and seek to create moments of quality inspired by observations from our daily lives. These experiences, both spatial and formal, are situationally grounded, considerate to human interaction and are inherently imbued with content and meaning.

As a collection of people with diverse backgrounds, we also believe that collaboration lies at the core of all good work. Regardless of method or medium, the greatest form of sustainability is to produce work of lasting value. In that spirit, we aspire to create things that are simple, beautiful and functional.
