Over the 23 years of growth & evolution, Stapati has refined its design philosophy of interpreting tradition in a modern context with emphasis on values of integrity, sustainability and innovation, which are the guiding principles behind all our works. The Stapati Calicut office is segregated into separate studios for effective organization and management, with each studio having their niche typologies. Each studio has multi-disciplinary teams of professionals, including architects, project co-ordinators, design assistants, site engineers etc, who work in cohesive teams for various projects. In addition to the key focus areas of large scale developments and hospitality projects, the office handles projects over a wide spectrum & scale - commercial complexes, housing projects, institutional buildings, individual residences and even interior designs. Located opposite the banks of the Canoly canal, the unique office spaces with the open studios connected with nature are a true reflection of our practice and philosophy.
