Journey Towards Excellence


Six Years back Ar.Anand Dhopte & Ar.Sheetal Dhopte, realized the need to bridge the gap between the mundane theory taught in colleges and the actual practicality of design and execution in the field of Interior Design. A lot of analysis was done with the actual points of concern. With the study of some National and International University modules & their relevence in solving the problem, they initiated a pattern based on ‘Study Without Books’. Their studies revealed the need to equip education with:

  • Thorough Practical Understanding,
  • Experiential Knowledge supporting Technical Theory.
  • Joy quotient to develop student initiative in every module of study.

This journey started with one students being taught by two teachers who were practising Architects on the first day. But their determination was rock solid. They marched ahead, enriching the course with:

  • Experienced Practicing Designers as Faculties.
  • Industry Experts having 15-20 years of Expertise as support team.
  • Site Visits to give exposure to running site parameters.
  • Manufacturing and Processing unit visits to understand material in thorough detail.
  • Regular Interaction sessions with Carpenters, Plumbers, Electricians, and other contractors to understand the executor’s difficulties.
  • Guidance from the senior designers for betterment.
