How The Enterprise Came To Be:
Both being in the same field of study, Ar. Vikas MV and Ar. Vishwas Venkat started his journey at MS Ramaiah Institute, Bangalore. As they shared the same view about the field of architecture and designs, the opportunity was created where both of them shared similar practical projects. Both of the architects, completing each other’s blind spot, soon realized how their talent and vision complemented each other.
Ar. Vishwas’s keen eye for details along with Ar. Vikas’s visualization skills helped them produce interesting works during their academic years.
Taking this cue from the projects, they understood that they can make a difference through their understanding.
