Affordable housing

Three young architects from IIT Kharagpur in 1995 christened an architecture practice which specialized and excelled in developing individual family homes. Initially called Tevatia Chauhan & Sharma Architects, the practice rechristened as Design Forum International (DFI) in 2003 with a clear intention of fostering an egalitarian organizational ethos where distinctive architectural talent finds self-expression and can contribute in a democratic and collaborative work environment.

The practice has since grown from strength to strength and is currently marching ahead with a vibrant team of over 100 professionals, each pursuing a distinctive value based architectural spirit. We execute each piece of work undertaken with a deep sense of optimism, excellence, and integrity keeping in mind that each project is a legacy for our future generations.
