Studio Biomorph founded by Ar. Sandeep Raj V and Ar. Karthica Kalyanasundaram with the sole intent of creating spaces that are well morphed with our environment. We as a young firm strive to approach every project and design as a unique puzzle-set to solve along with a holistic solution in mind. Our practice currently encompasses a team that has evolved from a strong architectural background as the cornerstone of our practice and similar perspectives towards design and architecture.

In totality, it has helped him to look at things from a global perspective and share a commonality in diversity.
