DesignAware is creating awareness through accessible art, design, geometry

We're a small team of creative individuals who like to experiment with art, design, craft and architecture. Our team consists of architects, activists, and designers, along with enthusiastic interns who are all working toward various kinds of design research and experiments.

DesignAware is an architecture and design studio that aims to create awareness and make design accessible to all. We've worked on a variety of projects, be it a home, an ice-cream parlor, a workspace, a school or a mosque. Apart from commercial projects, we retain our artistic freedom and integrity through two goals:

1 Design Access: We seek out pro bono projects that impact communities and help people from disadvantaged backgrounds through design. Occasionally, we crowdfund these causes and make them a reality. We've designed a charity school as well as a micro-mosque for the elderly, and we're always on the lookout for more meaningful work.

2 Passion Projects: In order to provide ourselves with an immersive creative outlet, we devote 20% of our time and efforts to self-motivated and self-funded projects that we've always wanted to do. These projects may be experimental, exploratory, research-oriented or academic, and aren't commissioned by clients; we pay for them ourselves. They may or may not earn us money, but they satisfy our creative urges and contribute to the field of design and to architectural discourse.

We believe that your help through Patreon will allow us to turn down projects that don't align with our principles and standards, so that we can continue to design and work toward spaces, usables and wearables that ignite our passions and make a difference.

Some of our designs may find their way to our Etsy shop: you decided what you'd like!
