MEDHA KAKADE Founder, Principal Architect
An astute sense for design comes naturally to Medha Kakade, the Founder and Principal Architect of Kreative House.
Originally from Sangli, in Maharashtra, Medha received her architectural degree from Appasaheb Birnale College of Architecture in 1999. Her first job was with the reputed architectural and interiors’ firm of Sangli–Parikh Associates. In a short time, her abilities saw her working as the primary architect on prestigious projects. Her strong design sensibilities had the firm entrusting two major interior projects to her completely. Medha’s stint at Parikh Associates came to an end in 2002.
That spelt the birth of Kreative House. Today, 12 years later, the company has several architectural and interiors’ projects in these two cities to their credit. Their work is also seen in Vizag and Solapur.
Over time, Kreative House moved from working on a five projects in a year to successfully handling over 14 to 15 projects. This happened in a short span of 6 years under the stewardship of Medha.
The dream that was, Kreative House only seemed to grow bigger with each passing day. In 2012, Pavan Kakade decided to call it quits at AHIDCO where he was the Chief Architect and joinedhands with his wife Medha at Kreative House.
Their working styles and expertise are a perfect complement to each other and Kreative House’s abilities are only poised to grow.
