Design Forum International is an architectural organization which was founded by three esteemed architects of our time, Goonmeet Singh Chauhan, Anoj Tevatia and Anand Sharma. After graduating from IIT Kharagpur, they started an architectural practice called Tevatia Chauhan & Sharma Architects in 1995 which was reincarnated into DFI in the year 2003. This practice was formed with a commitment to nurturing an egalitarian organizational ethos where distinctive architectural talent finds self-expression and can contribute in a democratic and collaborative work environment. DFI is a growing team of over 100 distinguished professionals. At DFI each project is executed with sanguinity, excellence, and veracity, with the intent of leaving a great legacy behind each piece of architecture that is built and designed. DFI’s prime objective is to achieve excellence in design, perfectly in balance to both time and cost.
Office spaces symbolize economic activity, social, technological, and financial progress. Employers today are increasingly bearing the responsibility of providing a quality workspace for their employees. Design Forum International shares that responsibility and therefore endeavors to construct office spaces that embody many essential requirements of today, such as a flexible environment that integrates technology, comfort, and safety, and energy efficiency to provide a productive, cost-effective, and aesthetically pleasing working environment. The firm also lays great importance to accommodate the specific space and equipment needs of the tenant and puts in great effort in the selection of interior finishes and art installations, particularly in entry spaces, conference rooms and other areas with public access. The above one can perceive in all the office spaces designed by DFI.
DFI aims to create through intelligent and amalgamated design high-performance offices that offer owners and users increased worker satisfaction and productivity, improved health, greater flexibility, and enhanced energy and environmental performance.
Building Office spaces that are aesthetically remarkable and functionally exceptional has become DFI’s métier.
