Her pet projects

Renu believes that every building design is a spontaneous expression that comes out of a perfect balance of the head (technology) and the heart (creativity). Her buildings have a personality of their own and reflect the purpose for which they were designed. An environment-conscious architect, most of her designs center on solar passive architecture, and often reflect organic shapes. Her buildings are practical, consumer-friendly, climatically-suitable, and based on green building principles to reduce carbon footprint.

An architect who endorses the belief that your work should speak for itself, Renu's key projects include:

  • A Forest complex building for the Punjab Forest Department, Mohali (designed on green building principles)
  • A museum for Baba Banda Singh Bahadur, Chaparchiri, SAS Nagar, Punjab featuring a victory tower that is 328'-0" high
  • Group housings for Central Government Employees Welfare Housing Organization in Panchkula, Kharar, and Mohali
  • IT building for Microtek International Pvt. Ltd.
  • NIIFT campus at Jalandhar
