“Team2 Architects” was launched in 2007 by a husband and wife collaboration. The two key principals of Team2 Architects are Deepak Krishna and Pari Saxena who are qualified and registered architects.
Deepak Krishna is a registered architect from Manipal Institute of Technology,India with a degree in Architecture. The final thesis project done by Deepak won a RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) gold medal award. Deepak worked at M/S Arun Nalapat Architects in India for an year and a half, after his return to Kenya he joined M/S Triad Architects in Nairobi. After working for 4 ½ years in Triad Architects and after completing projects like National Museum of Kenya, Deepak and Pari decided to set up “Team 2 Architects” in 2007.
Team 2 Architects was set in order to give an opportunity for solutions for specific requirements and problems which are encountered in projects. These requirements are solved based on designs which are cost efficient, climate responsive and within specific budget requirements. Apart from Kenya the firm has handled projects in Uganda, Rwanda and India. With the experiences of handling projects in different countries the idea behind each scheme is to come up with designs which are truly global in language but with a local vernacular underlying element to it. At Team 2 Architects we strive to handover projects within a given time period and budget.
Currently the firm is working on various projects ranging from housing, commercial. Medical facilities, bookshops, banks and product design. The idea is to work at macro & micro level without losing touch with the basic elements of designs. We try our best not to get monotonous with our designs and try bringing freshness in every new design we handle. We seek to create buildings and spaces which are appropriate to our times, yet rooted in our clients’ needs. We strive to apprise our clients of the latest developments in technology and design, presenting alternatives and suggestions, helping them arrive at an informed decision, about the spaces they will eventually occupy. We offer a complete range of Architecture, Planning and Interior design. In future we would like Team 2 Architects to become a One Stop Shop for innovative designs. In addition we would like to add a Research cell which will spend time on researching and documenting new and existing scenarios like urban design and product designs.
