Deeply interested in developing sustainable designs that are hallmarked by creativity and minimalism, Snehal has always focused on natural materials, creating schemes that are rooted to the earth and pay homage to the sky and water. A firm believer in being part of the change one would like to see in the society, he strives to create designs founded in simplicity and clarity, manifested through recycled, sustainable and natural substances. His inclusive approach invites all stakeholders to contribute in whatever measure possible towards the final outcome. For him, design is a collaborative process that includes a cross-section of disciplines; an emotional journey undertaken along with a client; and a universal entity. Which explains his sensitivity to designing public spaces keeping in mind human psychological behaviour as well as difficulties faced by the physically challenged. He is a member of the IIID body.
