Build­ing dreams

AAMIR, 34, AND HAMEEDA SHARMA, 33, In­te­rior de­sign­ers

India Today - - SIMPLY HYDERABAD -

They stud­ied in­te­rior de­sign to­gether, mar­ried young and have since then been de­sign­ing dreams for many. With some­thing like 43 on­go­ing projects in­clud­ing res­i­dences, of­fice spa­ces and hos­pi­tal­ity projects in var­i­ous cities, Aamir and Hameeda call be­ing busy a gross un­der­state­ment. But that doesn’t stop them from glo­be­trot­ting ev­ery few months. “Trav­el­ling gives us a chance to ob­serve varied de­sign aes­thet­ics and cul­tures, which in­spire our de­sign sen­si­bil­i­ties,” says Hameeda. Speak­ing of de­sign sen­si­bil­i­ties, hers is a sys­tem­atic style with an al­most ob­ses­sive at­ten­tion to de­tail, while Aamir is the wack­ier of the two and a self con­fessed crazy artist. “Any­thing can get my imag­i­na­tion go­ing—from an in­sect that hap­pens to land on my win­dow to fash­ion or even food,” he says. For a night­club in Hy­der­abad, he de­signed the ceil­ing like a wave that drops all the way down to the floor, in­spired by a kid bounc­ing a ball.

WALL OF FAME Their de­sign firm called AANDH has won sev­eral awards and is also the three time re­cip­i­ent of IIID (The In­sti­tute of In­dian In­te­rior De­sign­ers) national awards. They have also been nom­i­nated for var­i­ous in­ter­na­tional awards this year. Their lat­est ven­ture is an of­fice build­ing com­ing up in the city next year, which will have a 40 feet high and 100 feet wide bir­daviary.
