Established in the year 2003, VIGS Design has been a top player in the architectural works in Pune. Founded by Shashank and Tapasya Vig, this firm has been a one-stop destination for all design and architectural needs, servicing customers both local and from other parts of the country.

According to Shashank,
“At VIG Designs, bold thinking and design detailing come together to bring unique ideas to fruition. Our work is born from the desire to create an ideal spatial experience be it a residential or office interior, landscape design for a resort or the architectural design of a farmhouse. Further, our design approach, tries not to impose ‘our’ ideas on the user but rather accommodate the many inputs that may come from the very informed and much travelled client/end-user of today.”
Client collaboration has worked wonders for the firm, instead of taking a unidirectional approach, the co-creation aspect of VIG Designs have created a positive word-of-mouth. The approach of working in close collaboration with client and site teams have ensured holistic results that were achieved in promised timeline. We have created elegant contemporary and electric spaces combined with specification and richness.
