Nidhish Kurup

Partner and Principal Architect, Zerogravity studio

Nidhish graduated as an architect from Bharath Institute of Science and Technology, Chennai. During the course of graduation he interned with Sudhir Gandhi Associates, New Delhi, for a brief duration. He later shifted base to Bengaluru to work with The Bodhi Tree architects for nearly 5 years where he joined as a fresher architect and then went on to lead his own team.

As a designer, Nidhish likes to keep things simple. Simple designs that are elegant and purposeful, and simple processes that help achieve complex targets. In 2011, Nidhish partnered with Chaitra Saraf and Shruti Bihani to form Zero Gravity studio. Their greatest strength has been the sheer diversity in talent of each person in the team and the collaborative approach taken towards refining the designs. The studio emphasises on creating designs without boundaries and limitations, solutions which are non-conformal and unique, and spaces which are tailor made to meet the most demanding requirements.

In the f&b space, zero gravity studio has designed over 50 projects pan India of various formats and scales from lounges and restobars, to quick service restaurants and cafes.
