Ekta Ahuja, a celebrated architect and luxury interior designer, completed her schooling from St. Joseph’s High School, Pashan, and went on to pursue her passion with a degree from Dr. B. N. College of Architecture, Pune. She started her career under Architect Hafeez Contractor, who’s work culture and design ethos were both something that inspired and intrigued her in equal measure. An avid traveller with a keen interest in technology, Ekta defines her ever-evolving style as both “classic contemporary” and “maximalist.” Creating luxury scapes with the use of neutral tones in her hand-picked furniture and splashes of colour with her customised and curated artwork, artefacts, and soft furnishings, each space designed by Ekta tells a story of her clients, their vision, their passion, and their dreams.
A global connoisseur of luxury, with more than two decades of experience in the industry, what makes Ekta truly special is her ability to capture the client’s imagination and bring it to life in her design choices and implementation. From soft furnishings to colour palettes, from the utilisation of spaces to the incorporation of a design theme, Ekta is able to transform her client’s vision from an idea to actual brick and mortar. The philosophy behind her vision is simple. Each unique and luxurious creation must embody: (1) the spirit of the client, (2) the essence of the space, and (3) the surroundings it exists within. To this end, Ekta remains actively involved with each project from its ideation to completion, ensuring that each colour, each fabric, and each piece of metal, wood, glass, or stone is chosen by her to create the most unique and bespoke living and working spaces.
Ekta Ahuja is Pune’s most sought after luxury architect and designer, and she has found recognition in the form of both awards and features. She was awarded Femina Most Powerful 2021, in Business Connect she was featured as “A Credible Trendsetter in the Interior Designing Space,” and in Insight Success as “Inspiring Women in 2021.” Her work was also recognized in several renowned magazines, newspapers, and media (both digital and print). Some of which include Architecture + Design, Architect and Interiors India, Interiors & Decor, India Unicorn, MSG Architecture, Projects Monitor, Economic Times, Loksatta, Pune Mirror, Pune Prahar, Pune Satta, Pune Times, and NRI News.
