Architect and Interior Designer
Studio Osmosis is a multidisciplinary design practice formed by Sameer Balvally and Shilpa Jain Balvally in 2010 balancing strengths combining youth, experience and creativity. It was formed on the premise of transforming the quality of lifestyle by sensitively working with the client through a medium of design and dialogue. The Studio’s foundation is based on the genesis of the ‘Osmosis’ phenomenon by absorbing the individual needs of the client, working cohesively on the design and collaboratively arriving at a solution which is not only creative but also sustainable. All designs at the Studio are based on research and experimentation with adaptability as the key factor. The focus is always on the site, context, the constraints and the opportunity that a project presents.
Both Sameer and Shilpa have been felicitated as the next generation architects as the ‘ IGen Top50’ in 2013 . They have also both been awarded the ‘Young Achiever 2013’ by the MACCIA (Maharashtra Chambers of Commerce). Sameer Balvally had been selected as India’s HOT 100 Most Influential people in the industry by Commercial Design Magazine (ITP Publishing India) in 2014. Studio Osmosis projects have been published by various esteemed National magazines covering right from their commercial, hospitality to residential projects in the past years.
Studio Osmosis has a contemporary and flexible approach towards design and technology with no formal style they idolise; they derive inspiration from various walks of life, art, culture, history and the personalities involved. It is a Studio where young minds brain storm together; ideas are born, nurtured and streamlined to offer a unique and thoughtful product to the client. The designs and creativity are influenced by the environment and the built fabric in the various places they have travelled and observed over the years.
