Any building is built by an architect with some character, which is composed of FUNCTIONALITY, COMFORT, and ELEGANCE. Without any one of the three elements, the building is characterless and of no value and utility to the dweller. Most of the times and situations people wanting to build a house will come up with their functional requirements not firmed properly and having unusual expectations on architectural feats. And also they keep changing their ideas on the layout of the building too often. To cope up with this highly demanding customers, an architect should have enormous patience, tenacity, and adjustability apart from his creativity and knowledge, It is a big exercise to satisfy the customer by giving him all the ingrediants like, comfort, functionality and elegance. The other important expectation of the customer which he will hide but strongly look for is cost factor. So this is a very challenging balancing act for the architect to get in place all the factors to satisfy the customer.So far, I have built three houses, and my experience with Mr. Haresh Lakhani, is so pleasant and I am grateful to him for his contribution in giving me a great living place with a great character combining, comfort, functionality, and elegance. Building a house is a stressful process and not a pleasant one until it is ready for occupation. But, Mr. Haresh made my life so easy during the construction time by deploying quality conscious contractors for carpentry, electrical, sanitary and plumbing. He did a marvelous job in planning furniture to the house. In nutshell, he is one stop shop for me to get my most enjoyable house in any parameter. My association with him in building my house, I got not only an elegant HOME, but also a great and heartwarming friend for life. My sincere thanks to him and I have all the gratitude to him for giving a great product and service to me and my family. He should become country’s pride in the architectural space.
