Architecture for us is an Art.

An Art of articulating spatial volumes. Spaces that give the occupants a joy of being there in that space,at that time.


enso is a Japanese word which signifies a circle. It is a concept strongly associated with ‘ZEN’ It symbolizes Enlightenment, Strength, Elegance and moves on further to capture the essence of The Universe, and The Void

In short, Enso is a moment when creation happens


Enso believes that Architecture is an art. An art of articulating spaces. Spaces that give the occupants a joy of being there in that space at that time.

Natural Light is at the core of our design philosophy. We believe we need to harvest this energy that is in abundance. Having said that, using Light in the right amount is what makes a space. We follow the principle “One can appreciate light only in darkness”.

We believe that every building/Space that we design should have a soul. A Soul that converses with the occupants. Converses in terms of giving them a sense of Joy, warmth, Calmness and more importantly a sense of belonging to that space at that time.
