We have experience in large scale urban development projects, major commercial/retail projects high rise, Resort developments, Commercial Apartments, Universities and College campuses, Restoration and rehabilitation of historic buildings, Health care, Laboratory facilities, Airports, Hotels and Corporate Interiors

SDA is equipped with State-of-the-art computers to produce drawings, reports and specifications and are always on the cutting edge of design excellence.



We start designing by analyzing the problem. Our first tools are research, analysis and evaluation. While we inform ourselves with the latest international developments in the architectural and construction world we respond to the exigencies of the local conditions and the local culture.

A well based balanced approach to urban redevelopment, which strikes a stance between preservation of its historic character and the need to adapt to changing requirements and new development is what defines our design approach.

Our design guidelines will be the outcome of our investigative and analytic work for the project, which includes studies in demography, transportation, traffic patterns economics, relocation, education, recreation, community services, housing, health care and environmental issues.

Even though architecture has traditionally been practiced as an artistic enterprise, we believe in providing our services with thorough professionalism, giving due respect to business propositions of our clients. We use “Total Quality Project Management” (TQPM) techniques to control quality of products we deliver to our clients. Project schedules, cost control and meeting deadlines are important to us.



We are proud of the fact that there is no Stil Design “design style” – instead our designs are

unique yet variable, responding to the complex and challenging requirements set by our

clients. Across our portfolio we am committed to delivering excellence in sustainable design.


 Our Motto is simply:



PLAN Understanding my client’s needs and come up with a practical yet mind blowing design.

DESIGN Unlike many design companies, I believe that design solutions must be fitting to the time, place and culture in which they are located. Instead I prefer to offer excellent, inspirational architecture and urban design that reflects my diversity and collaborative working style.

ENABLE Ensure that each and every client gets individual attention and is guided from inception to completion of their project.
