About Us

Every tangible structure begins with the imagination, as a spark of inspiration, a hazy picture. And each picture is a manifestation of your own identity – a projection of your personality. These abstract images require not just expertise, but empathy to be rendered into concrete realities.

Three friends, who shared this conviction, started Jyaamiti Architectural Studio in Bangalore in 2008, to give shape to people’s ideas of their perfect spaces. Since then, the Jyaamiti family has grown to include an office in Chikmagalur, several young and enterprising architects, and a huge number of very happy clients!

Our Approach

Buildings are deeply subjective matters. Everyone has a unique idea of what their living or working space ought to look like. Sometimes these ideas appear as mere feelings; as emotions they wish the buildings to inspire in them – peace, tranquility, joy, vigor, pride.

At Jyaamiti, we engage with these sparks of the imagination and nurture them to evolve as complete pictures. These pictures are then actualized through creative design and are concretized as structures with the perfect blend of aesthetics, functionality and ergonomics.

In other words, you build your castles in the air; we will put them on earth for you.

Our Team

The ability to develop your nascent ideas into buildings that radiate beauty and joy, is the fundamental quality that the core team shares.
And it’s the members’ diverse personalities and specific strengths that complement each other for a holistic architectural experience.
