Principal Designer

Preshita Shah Gupta the founder of “The Design Chapel” studio is an alumini of the Centre of Environmental Planning and Technology, (C.E.P.T University), Ahmedabad. She graduated from the School of Interior Design (SID) with a Bachelor’s degree in Interior Architecture and was awarded the Vastu Shilpa Foundation Award for the best graduating student in the year 2009 – 2010 from the University.

She was also awarded the Baden- Wuttemburg Scholarship to study design at the Hochschule Fur Technik (HFT), University of Applied Sciences Stuttgart, Germany as part of the student exchange program. She did her graduate research thesis on ”Cross Cultural Interactions and Identity : An enquiry into the evolution of domestic built form and its interiors in Goa through Centuries”which helped her understand how it is important for architecture and design to be rooted in its region, vernacular, culture and environment.

Being an accomplished artist and painter herself, Preshita is extremely sensitive to her socio – cultural influences and believes that everything around us in nature can inspire design and art. This had led her to fuse Indian art, crafts, graphics, color, textiles and motifs with contemporary sensibilities. She believes that built form and interiors are always evolving and it is important to adapt to the present influences and design for the future.

Kajal KamathDip. I.d.d

Associate Designer

Kajal graduated from L.S. Raheja College of Architecture in 2015 and immediately dived into the professional ocean of Design where she quickly realized that Interior design was more than just coming up with simple concepts and making complex drawings. She joined the studio as a junior Interior Designer and through her sheer hard work and dedication, rose through the ranks and is now a Senior Designer at the studio. Her pursuit for perfection, quest for learning and experimenting with details and her eagerness to take up responsibilities make her grow every single day. Whether it is coordinating with contractors, vendors or discussing material choices with clients she is always at the top of her game. She loves to chit chat, can’t do without her evening cup of tea, holds her playlist dear and has a soft spot for dogs (pets and strays alike). She is the sunshine of the studio, its joy.
