The firm reflects the passion and commitment of extraordinary individuals with a common vision: to inspire quality living through innovation, sustainable design and holistic design approach. The firm’s humble beginning was started back in 1985 in Mumbai (India) through the formation of a three person design firm ARK Venture by our senior founding partner, Reza Kabul.

Our partners hold various licenses & credentials issued by various International jurisdictions: RIBA (U.K.), NCARB, AIA, USGBC, IAI, IID (Indian Institute of Design) and IIA (Indian Institute of Design).
With commitment to highest standard of quality and service for the clients, our firm’s approach gravitates around two essential tenets. One, is to provide great architectural design through attention to detail, green design strategies and affinity to the context/site, and the Two, is to provide great project delivery through excellent communication,
scheduling and cost control. In the practice, all of our projects must conform to the basic 4F concepts:
• Form – Aesthetic
• Function – Efficient circulation coupled with maximized space utilization
• Finance – A complete Revenue generating design
• Fit – Appropriate and site specific design solution.
We’re looking forward to join our peers at AIA East Bay Chapter and contribute our efforts in reshaping the community
in the Greater Bay Area. ■
