Dhruv Gulabchande, Associate Director and Architect
Dhruv contributes to design-led public realm and retail projects within the office. Having studied at both Westminster and Greenwich, with each commission he brings a narrative construct ultimately influencing his design work. Using these principles he has most recently completed the design and implementation for the remodelling of Hammerson’s New Street Mall at Grand Central, Birmingham.
"The built environment resides in the realm of research, design and cultural relevance. I take the stance that all spatial form should be composed of social narrative."
