Pragmatic simplicity towards sustainability 

Locus as a firm focuses on being a reference point in its practice through solutions which are highly pragmatic, rooted in the context and have a high regard for the setting.

The firm focuses repeatedly on utilising the available resources on site to create intelligent built environments and is consistent in its pursuit of conserving energy through use of passive architectural solutions.

The pursuit of enjoyable architecture with intelligent solutions that are simple and easily comprehendible to all, while deploying resources optimally is a key element of the practice. Integrating and interpreting varied requirements which are user oriented and sensitive at varying scales has been the avowed interest of the firm.

The firm prides itself in being able to find solutions in situations with constraints, which are sustainable economically, in its life cycle. Further it looks at its ability to engage itself in socially relevant architecture, and solutions aimed at solving problems related to urban settings and affordable housing as a key way of using architecture to serve the community. Making architecture relevant to the users, the witnesses and to the setting while making the architecture a sculpted response from all directions to deliver an enjoyable product sums up the approach.
