IND is an architecture studio based in both Mumbai and Amsterdam committed to blending modernity with tradition and research with practice across the fields of interiors, architecture and urban design.
Founded in 2015 by Rohan Varma, the name IND pays homage to the two countries (India and The Netherlands) that have influenced the work of the studio, and the two locations from where the studio currently operates. IND as a practice aims to operate at all scales - “from the Chair to the City”. We believe in a cross-disciplinary approach, where different disciplines, issues and scales help foster better ideas and generate critical thinking within the studio.
While we undertake work that ranges from residential interiors to larger architecture and urban design projects, we are at the same time committed to working in the social sector to bring good design to where it is needed the most. The India Studio initiated in 2017 aims to do just this. As the research wing of the practice, the studio undertakes studies related to informal settlements, affordable housing and rapid urbanisation in India.
Throughout our work, our attempt will always remain to express the genius loci of a place, and be shaped by its climate, culture, materials and people. Architecture is an art, but one that must be poetic and pragmatic all at once.
