With a long list of successfully completed projects to her credit, spanning all scales from small residences to multi utility complexes spread across the country and overseas, her portfolio covers customised residences, corporate headquarters, multiple installation branding, budget hotels, luxury destinations, data centers and many workshops. Her affinity to traditional language in facades and detailing is almost her trademark.
An academic bent and zest to be in the know spur her to have a fair grasp of most architectural software prevalent in the field. Her exacting standards push the team @ MSA to continually update their skills and produce nothing less than perfect. Her many years of experience with top architectural firms lends a confidence to take on any scale of the project and build it to completion. She brings to MSA the best international practices in detailing and coordination with respect to HVAC, plumbing, landscape, structures, and interiors. She has a firm grip on the building codes applicable, though there may be local variations.
As a pioneer in the field of ‘security through architectural design’ she is the first in the country to practice concepts of CPTED (Crime prevention through environmental design) and counter-terrorism aspects through mainstream architectural design. This is her focus and subject of doctoral research. She has authored a few papers on the same and the list is growing every day. She has participated in many Indian and international conferences imbibing and contextualizing all the knowledge for Indian benefit.
Manjari keeps in touch with the latest developments in her field by her various affiliations within and outside India. She is passionate about teaching and sharing her practical experiences with the next generation of architects. It is equally a learning for her and she thrives in their brightness and curiosity. Her love for her subject and careful patience with the young makes work at MSA a joyous journey.
She finds joy in design, a thrill in finding solutions to the Client’s needs, a satisfaction in translating their aspirations into mortar and concrete. Their satisfaction is her remuneration, their repeated commissions her appraisal and enhancement of their lifestyle is her fortune. @MSA, reputation is her biggest treasure and excellence a never ending strive.
