Aadharshila Designs Pvt. Ltd. (ADPL), a 25 years old architectural design firm started its journey in alternative building technologies and soon diversified into a spectrum of projects ranging from institutional campuses, housing and infrastructure facilities, corporate offices and interiors, industrial plants to specialized projects such as airports and convention centers. This diversity of experience has helped us in ADPL win many awards and accolades.
The company was formed in 1991 by Jyotimitra and Sundeep Khushu. They came together in a collaborative effort on a small but interesting project.
This was a small farm house to be built incorporating eco-friendly building technology with unbaked mud blocks made from earth dug out from the site itself. In 1994, Pratibha joined the firm bringing with her the experience of environmental and ecological planning. With this solid foundation and ideology, they formed Aadharshila Designs Pvt. Ltd. (ADPL).
