Architects in Kolhapur

“We create modern Architecturein Indian context that gives client a SENSE OF PRIDE”

An architect needs to design dreams and bring them to reality and that is what we have been doing. However, while doing that we also ensure that the functionality, aesthetics, economics, and affordability are all kept in mind. Our architect uses their professional and technical expertise to provide results that are well appreciated by our clients. What we do is slightly different; we suggest to the client a planned architectural designs piece that can be created keeping his budget in mind. As an architect it is our ethical duty to execute the project from start to finish and eliminate any problems that may arise during the process. As an architectural firm are also handling a team of mechanical, electrical, landscape, and acoustical, interior, firefighting networking consultants, who sit through and see if they each aspect of the client’s needs is fulfilled or not.

Dhole and associates have two areas in which they excel- architectural designs and interior designing. Thanks to a dedicated and professional team this architectural firm has shown a vast growth. This is in sync with the company’s policy to avoid any future expansion and strive to achieve excellence in whatever creative pursuits we undertake. We provide a service which is not just about giving our consultancy; we provide strong results maintaining the integrity of the profession we are in.

The team of designers and architect we have is pushing themselves to learn new technologies, construction methods, and materials in order to innovate and move ahead with the project in line. Our ultimate goal is that we must satisfy the client’s requirements yet adhering to the principles we have set for ourselves. Be it architectural designs or interiors we aim to maintain the same ideology across the board.
