About Us

 “design with purpose”​

arth’ symbolizes ‘essence’, ‘meaning’ and ‘purpose’ 
in Sanskrit the ancient native language of the Indian subcontinent. 

Studio Arth was founded in 2018 as a small team of passionate and committed designers to recreate the serenity of the natural environment and integrate nature in urban life through the medium of design. The ‘arth’ or ethos of the studio is to extend the realm of design and integrate the ecological systemic way of the ever-evolving and resilient natural world with our practice.

Studio Arth is an advocate for local building practices and the use of native planting palette. As an evolving practice, the studio is researching resilient native plant palette. We believe there is an inherent need to establish a novel vocabulary within the design realm that can revitalize the local flora and fauna and bring the essence of nature to people.
