About

designEARTH Build consist of a dynamic team of ecological builders lead by Jackson Porretta, a design Faculty at Srishti School of Art, Design, and Technology. Whose professional experience ranges from Ecological Design & Natural Building to Permaculture Land Practices.  As a collective, we have operated for the past 4+ years largely based in Bangalore, Karnataka but have successfully executed projects on the Andaman Islands to the foothills of the Western Ghats.  Our Core Competencies include: Earthen Construction techniques, Ecological Design Services, Treehouse Construction, Bamboo Craft & Construction, and Traditional Timber Framing.  

 

Our group believes in a versatile and responsive design process, an Architecture of Place and Process.  In a sense, our journey of the built environment is an ongoing dialogue between the locality, inhabitants, designers, and creators.  A guiding principle throughout all of our work is an authentic intimacy between the designers and craft builders, there is a wholistic commitment throughout any project and contemporary sensibility.  For designEARTH Build when simplicity in details & contemporary aesthetics combine then one can achieve an Evocative & Relevant Architecture.
