Nishant Machhar: \’Art communicates emotion the way nothing else can\’

\"\"

Beginning his professional journey as an architect at least 15 years ago, Nishant Machhar brings the heft of experience and perspective to his work. A long-time resident of Bhavnagar in Gujarat, he has numerous plaudits to his name — a Master of Architecture degree from The School of Architecture & Interior Design – DAAP, University of Cincinnati, work with Perkins + Will in Atlanta, work with HCP Design & Project Management Private Limited at Ahmedabad, and more. And today, he is principal architect and partner at Rajanikant Machhar + Nishant Machhar Architects, the family firm that was lovingly founded by his father Rajanikant Machhar in 1976, and has been creating incredible spaces for over 45 years as a brand. Nishant has executed a wide plethora of projects, ranging from private homes to multi-family housing, corporate or commercial spaces, educational institutions, industry buildings, auditoriums, landscaping and more. Nishant propounds that art, architecture and sculpture were all very much a common entity (and still are in a way), but that it is only in the last 200 years that we have even diversified and started considering them as separate principles. Thus, they all essentially belong together, he says, and make for the finest possible medium of expressing emotion. While appreciating the layers and facets of art, Nishant also says that art plays a hugely important role in the pursuit of having a space for oneself. His projects fall in no particular bracket and embody plenty of versatility while retaining an element of class. Cozy meets utilitarian and classic elegance meets modern, with his designed spaces integrating plenty of natural lighting, striking geometry, and more.
