K2India is a New Delhi based multi–disciplinary design and architectural firm constituted, in 2010, by Sunita Kohli (Padma Shri, 1992) and her Pratt Institute educated architect daughter, Kohelika Kohli. It was established, as their brand, to bring all the design disciplines practiced by their various companies, under one umbrella. These are ‘Kohelika Kohli Architects’ (est. 2004), the Architecture and Project Management cell of the company, known for its creative and contemporary buildings; ‘Sunita Kohli Interior Designs Pvt. Ltd.’ (est. 1972), the Interior Design cell of the company, research-based and concerned and sensitive to the physical context of a project and its cultural millieu; ‘Sunita Kohli & Co.’ (est. 1971), the Furniture Manufacturing cell of the company, whose range extends from the classical to the contemporary.
K2India is driven by the pursuit of excellence and quality. They strongly believe that one’s surroundings directly influence the quality of one’s lives - whether in the work place, at home or the public spaces in between. Their approach is rooted in a firm belief that design is fundamental to improving the quality of life, and with an integrated and unified approach, it can become a total functional and living WORK OF ART.
It is their endeavour to provide their clients with the most cutting-edge designs and cost-effective solutions of form and functionality. Internationally today, all major projects are driven by interior architecture and design, to their final architectural forms. These are the strengths of K2India.
The company has been working on numerous turn-key projects. K2India has set up a highly qualified team that can undertake the design and execution of architectural, structural, MEP services, landscape, interior architectural and interior design projects, together with the manufacture of their own refined and customized furniture.
They have successfully completed projects in several countries such as Egypt, England, Bhutan and Sri Lanka. The company specializes in the design of private residences, corporate offices, restaurants, gyms, hotels and resorts, luxury hotel boats and aircrafts; and the restoration of public buildings, forts, palaces and heritage properties.
Some of their highly celebrated projects in New Delhi have been the restoration of many British period buildings – designed by Sir Edward Lutyens, Sir Herbert Baker and Sir Robert Tor Russell – notably Rashtrapati Bhawan, the Prime Minister’s Office and Official Residence, Hyderabad House, the bungalows of the Indira Gandhi Memorial Museum and the British Council Building and Library. They continue to creatively and successfully work on projects in India and a few outside the country. In 2014, K2India was given the Architectural Digest 50 Award.
