Cinnamon Design Studio


We Are

Divya Gulechha Chief Architect

Divya is the principal architect and the founder of Cinnamon Design Studio. With a Master’s in Architectural design from the Mies Foundation in Barcelona, her designs are primarily based on the harmony of the built environment with that of the natural elements.

Having said that, her key architectural derivatives and elements are deep rooted in the design solutions of Indian architectural practices-both ancient and contemporary.

Her primary inspirations include the likes of architects Geoffrey bawa, Laurie Baker and Charles Correa on home ground and Bjarke Ingels and Frank Lloyd Wright outside the Indian subcontinent.

Among other things, Divya has a keen interest in the history and present condition of her city of Hyderabad and actively documents a lot of nitty gritties of everyday life in her city.
