Nikita Joshi: \’Design devoid of art leaves an indelible void\’

\"\"For the last half decade or so, Nikita Joshi has run the studio ‘m.a.t.i architects’, working out of Ahmedabad while accomplishing numerous residential and commercial projects of a versatile nature. Taking her rich prior experience at Jagrut & Partners, the young architect is crystal clear that attention to detail in each project aims to cater to people, society and nature amongst its prime values. Resonating the client’s needs is a top priority for her when it comes to environ and design solutions, with a fresh and dynamic team working in cohesion to approach the practice with unique and varied perspectives. Nikita espouses the view that architecture without art can leave an indelible void — no matter how much marble, stone, glass, paneling or veneer work is used, the lack of art leaves behind a missing factor in the sense of attachment to any space, and severely mitigates the capability to tell a story differently for any client or project. On the other hand, expertly incorporated art into spaces brings in both interaction and automatically generated emotion, says Nikita. With innovation, she aspires to bring together the essentials of designing any space by blending together elegance, creativity and modern technology. Her projects embody this perspective, collating subtle quirk into classic settings that sing of comfort, familiarity and sleekness, yet abound with unique statement pieces that immeasurably enrich the experience, whether in the form of sculptures, wall hangings, knick knacks or more, standing out in vivid contrast. Her use of space and lighting, as well as the incorporation of natural elements, speaks hugely of the modernity in her approach and execution — wherein old school and contemporary vision blends beautifully.
