World Architecture Day; Industry extends its gratitude towards the architecture & Design community | SURFACES REPORTER News Update

On the occasion of World Architecture Day, Oct 4, 2021, the materials industry extends its gratitude towards the architecture and Design community for creating designs that are the need of the hour. A report by SURFACES REPORTER (SR).

Architects- the trendsetters of the society

Architects and designers play a crucial role in understanding the people’s need and create the structure accordingly. In addition to that, they are also responsible towards the environment as well as the society. Shyam Motwani, EVP and Business Head, Godrej Locks said, “As we celebrate World Architecture Day, we would like to extend our gratitude towards the architects for the designs they create to develop residential and commercial spaces to meet the project requirements. The needs of consumers are persistently evolving with the passage of time and therefore, architects have to keep up with the ever-changing trends of the industry.

We truly believe that they help bring dreams to reality, through their innovative design spaces. At Godrej Locks & Architectural Fittings and Systems business, we trust that gifted architects can make a significant contribution towards meeting a project’s safety objectives, and also integrate the crucial aspects of sustainability in the current times. Therefore, to further strengthen our relationship with the architect community, we recently launched the ‘Godrej Value Co-Creators Club’ which is aimed at enabling a free flow of information so that their feedback can be incorporated while planning a new product development or understanding the market trends. Additionally, we are also planning to introduce a recognition programme to celebrate their contributions and establish an annual awards ceremony to salute the great minds in the architecture community titled ‘The GeeVees’.”

Creators of Smart and Futuristic Designs

Home automation is the latest concept in designing and architects play an important role in making people understand the need and value of it.  Kishan Jain, Director, Goldmedal Electricals said, “Indian homes and offices are fast moving towards the adoption of smart & futuristic designs. Taking cognizance of this, Indian architects have taken initiative to move towards enabling such design spaces to come to life. At Goldmedal Electricals, we truly believe that architects are of one our most important stakeholders/influencers. They act as a vital touchpoint between us and our customers, to educate and share knowledge about the offerings and innovativeness of our products.

\Architects and designers have consistently supported the latest trends in smart home automation by integrating tech based designs in projects, further motivating companies like ours, to constantly research and develop top quality tech products. This World Architecture Day we express our immense gratitude towards the architect community and applaud them for the exceptional designs they create, catering to the different needs and tastes of every individual. We at Goldmedal Electricals salute every architect who supports us in re-designing spaces and upgrading the lifestyles of customers.”

Sustainability holds the key

Appreciating the efforts of bringing in sustainability in construction and design, Rajesh Uttamchandani, Director at Syska said, “The objective of World Architecture Day is to show appreciation and support towards the architect community and commend them for the exceptional designs they create to ramp-up any commercial or residential space. Indian architects have been implementing sustainable strategies in building designs and have been working towards bringing unique lighting effects on structures with architectural elements, for both indoor and outdoor applications as well as for decorative and functional purposes. While cost is always a top consideration, designers have been spending more energies on creating environmentally friendly strategies that not only offer large savings on time, but also positively affect the air quality, conserve energy resources, and drive the country towards a regenerative tomorrow.

At Syska, we believe that architects and designers are major influencers who support the usage of sustainable products such as LED light in their projects. Designing spaces sustainably is not a daunting prospect, infact this phenomenon is gaining momentum especially in the current times. A qualified architect carefully understands the necessities and interests of its clients and offers sustainable architecture approaches that best suffice the core objective and budget of the project. On this occasion, we at Syska continue to support and salute every architect who has been working with us in reshaping spaces and designs to enhance the lifestyles of consumers.”

SURFACES REPORTER also commends the role of architects and designers for their role in creating sustainable built environment and hopes that the shortcomings related to the unsustainable ways of working will be resolved soon.
