I have been fascinated with buildings ever since I started playing with my brother’s Lego sets as a child. This spark eventually turned into a lifelong passion that would shape my career. My path started out in trying to balance my flair for engineering and passion for design and the arts, which led me to secure a place at the School of Architecture and Planning, Anna University, Chennai. An area of international research which caught my attention in my final year of undergrad school was the frontier field of sustainability and the much-discussed ‘green revolution’. From there on, there was no turning back, my passion for all things sustainable, drove me to practice at T. R Hamzah & Yeang Sdn, Bhd in Kuala Lumpur. In 2009, I chose to return to academics and pursued my Masters in Sustainable Environmental Design at the Architectural Association, London, UK. Post-Graduation, my focus shifted to broadening my knowledge in Green building certification and worked as a green analyst with Design Partner Architects Singapore & with Environmental Design Solutions Pvt Ltd India. I am a LEED® Accredited Professional with a specialty in Building Design & Construction, a certified GRIHA Evaluator & Trainer, and a Green Mark Manager (GMM) from the BCA Academy Singapore. Starting Midori Architects was a natural step in my journey. As an innovator, I wanted to approach design challenges with a fresh, unique, modern sustainable perspective that crafts spaces for a life well lived.
