Ar. Shagufta Rao

Ar. Shagufta Rao, the dynamic and meticulous architect began her journey at a very early stage in her life. She was determined to be an architect since her school days. This natural conviction towards architecture came as a gift and she went on to get her degree in Architecture from Rachana Sansad's Academy of Architecture.

Her focus, perseverance and the love for architecture got her an opportunity to work with the best, none other than Ar. Hafeez Contractor. The experience at AHC was enlightening and had laid a strong foundation for the Architect to start her own practice someday. She was part of the Team that commissioned some of the finest projects like Delhi Public School, Housing scheme in Navi-Mumbai, Crompton Greaves which got her recognised internationally. She landed up at P&T Group, Thailand, the award-winning, global design firm ranked amongst the top 10 architecture firms in the world. She was spear heading the architectural projects at P&T Group and was recognised and appreciated for Shanghai Pudong Olympic Centre, Lumpini Hotel and Sansiri Housing schemes to name a few.

Through this wonderful professional journey there came a point in the career where the entrepreneur within had a calling and the architect started her own Practice in 2013, AIS DESIGNS, once of the most exhilarating journey till date.

‘We Make It Happen from Architecture to Interiors’

Design Philosophy

Design Philosophy Shagufta Rao

AIS Designs strongly believes that architecture is a comprehensive planning and designing of exterior

and interior spaces, a complete holistic approach. It is a result of the technical innovation and

pushing the boundaries of the traditional view of how things have been instead of how things could

be. Each project requires a specific and unique solution which is beyond the style and branding

constraints and this approach results in architectural structures which function beyond the clients’


Being an Architect is a social responsibility as we always live in a projective world, one has to

imagine things that can be created while still being confined to what is available. We strive to design

structures that meet the challenges of the modern society while maintaining the cultural foot print,

that shape the lives of people and organisations getting people to come together in new ways.
