PROLOGUE

Xponent, the idea, was conceptualised in the pink city of Jaipur in late 2008 over a discussion in the conference room of an architectural firm where the co-founders had joined as freshers.

The aim was to put themselves up for more challenges, independence, experimentation and to break away from the monotony of a routine.

Xponent registered itself on 5th March 2009, and is growing ever since.

PHILOSOPHY

Xponent = Multiply = Grow = Develop = Evolve

The philosophy of Xponent begins with a commitment to outstanding design services. We believe that good design comes from an open, collaborative, and enjoyable engagement with the client and the project team.

 

With no predetermined style in mind, design excellence involves meeting the client's budgetary and scheduling goals as well as aspirations, from early conceptual and planning stages through to documentation, implementation and administration. Our intent is to provide intelligent direction aimed at embodying value for the client.

 

An idea oriented firm, we believe that in design a good idea always matters - irrespective of its origin. This openness with a dedication to refining constructive craft, and the implementation of up to date tools, is the stylistic base' of the office. Merged with the client's vision and the ground realities of the design problem, it is this genuine directness which can elevate the outcome to a high level.

PROCESS

According to Dino Dini, “Design is the management of constraints”. Therefore, the client’s priorities are the most important driver in the design process.

 

Each executed design represents a specific: a synthesis of the goals, aspirations, and environment that go into the process of making it. Every place and every owner bring their individual requirements to the table, and it is the process of architecture to turn these requirements into reality.

 

Xponent identifies two kinds of constraints, negotiable and non-negotiable. The first step in the design process is the identification, classification and selection of constraints. The process of design then proceeds from here by manipulating design variables so as to satisfy the non-negotiable constraints and optimizing those which are negotiable.
