Studio Symbiosis Studio Symbiosis is an architectural & interior design studio based in Stuttgart and Delhi involved in projects of various scales and sectors. The design philosophy is to create integrated design solutions imbibing amalgamated, efficient, robust and sustainable designs leading to performative architecture. The research and intent of the practice is to create performance as a design driver, to achieve Sustainable and Smart buildings. This integration of performance based aesthetics exists in nature everywhere around us. Nature has tested and evolved these systems through iterative process to create robust and elegant design solutions. The complexity of the various subsystems are selectively articulated to generate the final design solution. The practice believes that with computational tools it is possible to create elegant design solutions driven by performance. Performative ecologies can respond to various parameters integrated as design drivers. The key projects from Studio Symbiosis are; Double Tree by Hilton Ahmedabad, Double Tree by Hilton Kathmandu, Taj Ahmedabad, Taj jodhpur, Trans Ganga Masterplan Kanpur, Allahabad Masterplan, Information Directorate Headquarters Lucknow, Punjab Kesari Headquarters Delhi, Design Hotel Rohtak to name a few.
