"Architecture is not like a painting, it has certain utilitarian aspects. We are creating buildings for the people using them, and their views, likes, and dislikes are very important. I do not want to impose my ideas on the buildings I design. I design each building according to each client’s needs, and that is why my buildings are different. Even if they are not interested, I will try my best to involve them. I want to make nice buildings that people like to use; I want to give importance to their physical and psychological needs. As each client is different, the details of each house will also be different," shares Kuriakose about his design sensibilities and vision.
