HITARTH MAJITHIYA

CO-FOUNDER 

hitarth B and W.jpg

He is a graduate of CEPT university with a degree in Bachelor of Architecture. He is the quiet one, with a keen sense of detailing and the one who is trying to make all the crazy ideas come true. Travelling and mountaineering are his true passions. His sketchbook is filled with tiny detailed sketches and is a beauty to look at.


During his work at Flying elephants based in Bangalore, he learnt how to make use of models to design, organise his work and produce detailed sets of drawings. A profound impact of staying in bangalore has led him to extensively travel south India. Further study at Politecnico di Milano in Italy, he learnt how to think at a bigger scale, fend for himself and travel with no abandon. He has travelled extensively to over 11 countries with a keen eye looking at the architecture of the world.

Since then, he has been working as an architect from the varying scales of furniture design to institutional architecture with equal rigor, passion and care.
