CSA Partners Ltd. comprises of a diverse group of talented individuals united in our commitment to produce design solutions of signiﬁcant value, while comprehensively addressing the needs of our clients. Our practice has an integral system of constructive self-criticism that encourages the pursuit of individual and collective creativity, promoting excellence at every step. Consistency, innovation and rigor, are key motivators in our desire to be a leading architecture ﬁrm. We have ofﬁces in Chicago and Mumbai, and we hope to set up establishments in other cities, where our work requires a hands on presence.
We do not work in any particular style and avoid historical replication, choosing instead, to produce original work that is nonetheless informed by its environment, history and context. By positing an architectural grammar that is driven by concept, metaphor, appropriateness of material and especially design detail, the ﬁrm frees itself from the static aspects of pedagogy. We provide designs that are architecturally signiﬁcant in their conceptual approach, yet sensitive to the historical and cultural environment in which they reside. We obsess in our attention to design detail and consider fabrication of ‘things’ essential to the successful realization of any project.
Our current body of work; built, under construction, or in design, encompasses most building typologies and spans multiple cities in the United States and in India. A number of projects designed by our principals have received national or international honors, and a fair portion of those have been won through intense design competitions. These serve as validation for our sustained commitment to excellence. Each project receives sustained diligence, care and shepherding, often resulting in repeat clientele that have a signiﬁcant institutional presence. The people we have served committedly over the years include, the City of Chicago, City of Lancaster CA, Ministry of Finance-Government of India, Defense Research & Development Organization-Govt. of India, Bhabha Atomic Research Center-Govt. of India.
