Planning & Urban Design

RKA adopts a holistic approach to interior design and perceives the internal space as an integrated part of the complete design of any building project. Space are planned resourcefully, they are ecologically friendly and generate an enduring impression, exclusively for that client’s assignment.

Our experience of working closely with large client organizations has enabled us to understand and meet the client’s aspiration for each project.

RKA has the skills to integrate the complex technical requirements of providing flexible generic space with the more subjective aesthetic and psychological perceptions of interior space. Our knowledge of interior finishes allows us to develop a design uniquely suited to the project. We provide in-depth analysis of current work patterns and linkages and then develop a common approach across the project that not only meets current needs, but also allows for future change over the planned life of the development.

RKA has provided interior design services for different kinds of projects including corporate offices, hotels and restaurants. Designing offices for Corporate and multi-national firms is RKA’s forte. Designing offices often include specialty areas such as conference centers, training facilities, cafeterias, day care centers, auditoriums and health clubs.
