Nilesh & Bhavya Kenkre – On the growth path

February 20, 2010

Nilesh & Bhavya Kenkre are much sought after architects who have executed varied prestigious projects and have many more in their kitty.

Marshalls’ “Home-makeover festival” drew several reputed architects and interior designers. The architects’ duo Nilesh Kenkre and Bhavya Kenkre were also among the esteemed guests who visited Marshalls Elite during the event. Both of them are prominent and reputed architects in their own right with several well-known projects to their credit.

In a cozy chitchatting session with Mona Menon, CEO, Marshalls, Nilesh and Bhavya Kenkre talk about their chosen profession, experiences in this dynamic field, areas of specialization and lot more. Both of them are experienced architects. Nilesh Kenkre has been practicing architecture since the last 16 years while Bhavya Kenkre has been in this field for the past 13 years.

On being asked about their specialization, Bhavya says that it lies in variety. They have handled varied projects in different segments like homes, offices, hotels and hospitals. Nilesh Kenkre further elucidates that they have successfully completed diverse projects like a Buddhist Temple, a meditation centre, two nightclubs and celebrity residences.

Bhavya Kenkre opines that residential projects are very interesting as they are very personal and therefore more challenging. Earlier glamour was a concept that applied to entertainment areas like hotels, pubs and restaurants and commercial places. However nowadays glamour has touched residences as well making them even more fun to do these kinds of places.

Both Nilesh and Bhavya Kenkre are quite positive and enthusiastic as far as wallpapers are concerned. “Wallpapers is really a beautiful invention”, says Bhavya Kenkre. They both feel that wallpapers helps to save time and complete projects faster.  Moreover, while paint jobs can look patchy and not give a good finish at times, wallpapers add to the decor and make the walls look more beautiful.

They are all praise for the wide range of designs and textures available in wallpapers. Moreover, they claim that wallpapers are completely hassle free. They can also be used to highlight ceilings and the background.

When queried about their USP both Nilesh and Bhavya feel that it is their mutual interest as well as their passion toward their designs created. In addition, their erstwhile clients are their friends now, which is a compliment and their strength.
