Author: unTAG Architecture & Interiors

unTAG is a unison of two contrasting architects, Gauri Satam and Tejesh Patil, who have come together to craft a Mumbai based interdisciplinary design studio since 2015. Both graduates from JJ, they have independently worked with reputed firms in India, assimilating their creative learnings, before starting on their own. ​ The studio strongly adheres to climatic sensibility, contextual rooting, spatial functionality, material sensitivity and economic viability as their core values. ​ Through our experimental practice, we wish to lend our service to every strata of society, till the very grass-root level. We have been constantly questioning the current trend of most affluent architects catering mainly to the rich, creating a picturereque image of their practice, while prioritizing aesthetics over rationale. Being a young zealous practice, we consider each project SPECIAL, calling for a SPECIFIC design solution, SENSITIVE to its context, irrespective of its scale or budget. We do not want to associate our practice with a particular design language, rather we want our design to be dictated by the brief, budget, climate and context, hence the name unTAG. ​ We truly believe that accurate transformation of an idea on paper into an actual built form, with appropriate material palette conducive to the native climate is the key to a good architectural practice. For us, its not just how the built form looks when newly completed, rather its how it is experienced and inhabited by the users, and how gracefully it ages. ​
