Ar. Amit Aurora and Ar. Rahul Bansal, DCA Architects
"Architecture is the perfect amalgamation between art and technology with rational and social implications."
DCA Architects is an award-winning, nationally and internationally acclaimed, multi-disciplinary design firm, based out of New Delhi, India. Founded in 1996, over the last two decades, the firm has accomplished architecture and design projects across diverse scales and typologies. Today, the firm has to its credit, remarkable, award-winning, widely acclaimed projects such as:
Each project is treated individually with an approach that is most appropriate to the project’s identity, concept, business format, target clientele, code of ethics, context, site location etc. Rather than following current trends, or designing for the short term, we believe in sustainable design which is exclusive, well - balanced, contextual and appropriate. A conscious effort is made to use local, made in India, sustainable materials/technology, that reinforce traditional crafts and skillsets of the craftsmen, while minimizing the impact on the environment as much as possible. Each project is therefore not a cookie-cutter solution, but is instead climate appropriate and designed to meet specific needs and contextual conditions that create an exclusive, yet relevant product. Through its contribution in the realm of Architecture and Interior Design, DCA Architects has made a mark across the South Asia, Africa and the Middle East.
Spearheading group DCA are architects Amit Aurora and Rahul Bansal, who graduated in 1993 from the esteemed School of Planning and Architecture (SPA), New Delhi. Both the partners, through their individual expertise have contributed towards the firm’s robust image in the design industry, with a special focus on delivering design excellence and innovation. With their dedication towards contextual and sustainable designs, inspiring young talent and nurturing human relations, today, they lead an energized and enthusiastic team of over 40 professionals.
Starting their journey together from the School of Planning and Architecture (SPA), in 1988, they continued work together as a team on various academic projects. Upon graduating, they moved on their individual paths to explore and enhance their own interests and diverse skill-sets, until 1996 when they joined hands together with a vision to augment the design quotient in the country. Working with the best consultants in the industry, Rahul and Amit’s intent is to deliver unique, context-specific, cost - effective and sensitive designs. In doing that, they have emerged as trend-setters in the design world. Their inimitable style and distinctive design approach can be appreciated in the architecture and interior design of residences, customized boutique spaces, commercial complexes, luxury boutiques, retail stores as well as the more popular restaurants and cafes, setting new trends that have now become benchmarks in the design fraternity.
Since its inception in the year 1996, group DCA has been focused in its approach as a skillful balance of talent, experience and hard work. Providing services in Architecture, Interior design and Design Coordination across a wide range of building types including Workspaces, Residences, Retail and Hospitality, our core values are targeted at Design excellence, innovation and customer satisfaction, while enabling Brand identities.
