‘People-centric’ design is a term that is commonly heard today. Back in 1996, Sathish was at the forefront of defining what the term means. His approach towards creating projects that transcend time and trend comes from his ideology of looking at a space as an extension of personalities and emotions. His multi-dimensional outlook, coupled with his foresight, enabled him to start an organisation that today carries forward his values of putting people first.
Coming from a humble background with its roots in construction, Sathish worked his way through the years to help construct structures with a future-forward sensibility, which exemplified the rapid development that the city would see in the next 20 years. His ‘family first’ philosophy went beyond his peers and clients, as he focused on enabling younger architects to establish themselves as innovators during their formative years. His vision of inclusivity and innovation lives on at SASW.
