Why Offcentered...?

IN THE JOURNEY OF LIFE, BY TAKING THE PATH OF ARCHITECTURE WE ARE IN AN ADVANTAGE OF LEAVING BEHIND FROZEN IDEAS, SHAPED TO SERVE HUMAN NEEDS AND EMOTIONS. WHILE ADDRESSING THEM, DEDICATION AND INDIVIDUALITY IS VITAL IN ENRICHING THE POWER TO CAST EVERLASTING IMPRESSIONS. YOUNG MINDS ARE SURE TO CREATE THEM. THESE LED TO THE BIRTH OF OFFCENTERED- A CONCOCTION OF YOUNG MINDS, TALENT, AND BURNING DESIRES TO ACHIEVE.

To glorify great deals made by a small difference! Simply saying... `WE INTEND TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE’.

Do we make the difference by perceiving a design with respect to its time of execution? Or by imposing a particular style invariable of its type, context and constraints? DEFINITELY NO! We believe in conceptualizing design in harmony with time component and its context, beyond the normal massing and interesting 3- dimensional compositions.

Design tends to be TIMELESS once the requirements and constraints are solved without compensating either one. In our attempts to achieve timelessness in our design, we would strive hard to achieve a harmonious balance in the satisfactory levels of the architect and the client.

"If you think good design is expensive,

you should look at the cost of bad design."
