About Us

Who We Are

Abashan Upodeshta Limited was founded in 1998. It has since emerged as a leading architecture practice, recognised for its culturally responsive solutions. The practice is grounded on a design approach which stimulates profound, socially inclusive community engagement. Over the years, an understanding of the values of a culture has been translated into an architectural language which has in turn informed and directed the design process. Our long experience of working with cultural spaces and cultivating communities where people can feel engaged and part of something bigger than themselves, remains as relevant as ever.
