This is Us

Mr. Sunil Saini and Mr. Sushil Aggarwal, our principal architects and SPA graduates (1984), combined their varied areas of interest and expertise and established ‘Design Team, Architects and Interior Designers’ in 1986. Thereafter, they established ‘Sunil Saini Sushil Aggarwal Architects’, a New Delhi-based firm comprising a team of highly motivated and dedicated professionals.

We undertake diverse projects across a wide area of interests and applications, embodying the
strong belief held by our co-founders – that balancing experience with innovation is imperative for
keeping the creative spark alive – and that is only possible by exploring a variety of work.

Engaging with our clients at every step of our design process is at the core of what we do, right from
the conception of the idea, selection of the site, to finalising the project budget. We understand their
aspirations and limitations, and synthesise them with the technical feasibility of the same to birth the
architectural expression.

We believe in creating holistic architectural projects, the final form being an expression of various
factors: climate, function, stability and the cumulative expression of our creativity and our
clients’ vision.

We believe in appointing technical consultants for various services and the engineering phases to
ensure a technically sound completion for every facet of the project. To this end, we detail the project
to its finest level, using BIM and latest building performance simulation tools and processes
to ascertain design and actual building performance.
