Compartment S4 is a collaborative of eight architects, graduated from Centre of Environmental Planning and Technology (CEPT) University. Our firm was conceived in May 2017 with the intent to provide sophisticated design solution from user-driven perspectives in both the formal and informal sectors of rural and urban India. As a design collective we cover a plethora of initiatives ranging from private and government projects to publications, furniture design, construction workshops and even curating discussions. We have developed a set of ideologies which define the way we work: - Designing interventions which have a large resultant impact on the context, irrespective of the scale of project. - Exploring local materials and techniques in the process of construction. - Committed to the betterment of a given environment not restricted to only the built expressions but also extending to other interventions in the form of workshops, activities on site etc : essentially finding and providing what is essential to the context. - Activating spaces in an attempt to make them more usable. Contributing as problem solvers through systemic approaches in design. - Thus creating efficient systems and processes which can be repeated from place to place.
