Complementing Each Other – In Life and Work
The design firm with husband-wife architect duo – Pavan Kakade and Medha Kakade at the helm has grown to become a single-stop shop for its prospective clients.
An astute sense for the design comes naturally to Medha, the Founder and Principal Architect. Her first job was with the reputed architectural and interiors’ firm in Sangli. Her strong design sensibilities saw her handling major interior projects completely on her own. Her stint at the firm came to an end in 2002 which paved the way for the foundation of Kreative House.
In 2012, she was joined by her husband Pavan who was working in the capacity of ‘Chief Architect’ at AHIDCO (Aditya Housing& Infrastructure Development Corporation). Hailing from Solapur, Maharashtra, Pavan was born and brought up in Hyderabad. With a passion for architectural design, Pavan enrolled in JNTU (Jawaharlal Nehru Technical University) to pursue Architecture. His creativity was acknowledged by NASA (National Association of Students of Architecture) when Pavan designed a “Futuristic Living Module” which was selected as one of the best designs in the competition. His career started with a leading architecture firm, moving on to to the role of lead Architect with HDFC for architecture and interior works of their new branches and project evaluations, then AHIDCO and finally Kreative House.
Medha and Pavan’s working styles and expertise are a perfect complement to each other and Kreative House’s abilities are only poised to grow. With their rich knowledge in designing and project handling, they have taken the firm from a home office of staff four people to one of the leading architecture and interior designing firm in Hyderabad and Pune. Its work is also seen in Vizag and Solapur.
