Believing that every problem has the capacity to inspire unique and creative solutions that motivate growth, the young duo of Badrinath Kaleru and Prerna Kaleru, founded Studio Ardete in the year 2010. Located in Chandigarh, India, the team at Studio Ardete aims to make each project they undertake, a study in logical and comprehensive design. Their vision is to design spaces that would evolve into art, enriching the lives of the people inhabiting them.
Not hesitating to take on even the most challenging of projects, they use modern construction and building methods to come up with designs that are at par with the most accomplished practices in the world. Ardete incorporates new techniques like parametric modeling and customized design elements, unique to each project they take on, striving to use materials available on-site to make the projects sustainable. They work closely with the clients to understand their requirements and engage them in the design process, making them an intrinsic part of it.
Working on projects ranging from architecture to interiors, the architects at Ardete are always motivated to transform what is regular and conventional and flirt with the boundaries of art in architecture. Careful deliberation is employed at each step of the process of building the project. In the urban and economic scenario today, which dictates most of the construction and architectural practices, Ardete attempts to erase the divide between practicality and innovation. Each project, regardless of the scale is considered complete in itself and attention is given to each and every detail.
With a passion for creating something distinctive and a taste for experimentation, Studio Ardete has completed various projects in India and abroad. Having designed in parts of Asia and Europe, including Japan, Italy, and France, they believe in a wider, more analytical approach. They have also been published in various national and international architecture and design magazines and online portals, besides being the finalists for the WAF, 2015 and Runners-Up for AR Design Awards, Finalists for World Architecture Festival (WAF 2017), Euro Shop retail design award 2017 and Silver winner for FOAID 2017, NDTV Grohe Awards for best washroom design.

Badrinath Kaleru & Prerna Kaleru, an Alumni of IIT Roorkee, founded Studio Ardete in 2010 as a proponent of “SPACE IS MORE” with the belief that built spaces need to celebrate the Human existence, the Life .
Buildings need to connect to its users at an emotional domain. If it happens the physical aspects of space the form, materials and style disappear, The space bonds to its user like another human, its becomes alive.
