about us

FUSIONstudio is a Mumbai based multidisciplinary design practice founded by architects Tiran Driver and Nicola Gerber. Both partners are graduates of Columbia University’s GSAPP, New York and have worked on architecture projects in India and abroad.

The studio has experience in a variety of projects including private residences and interiors, urban housing and ecological landscape studies. Our work draws on project specific conceptual responses, environmental values and the careful design and execution of detail. They create spaces, which are contemporary and innovative by design, have a sense of purity and are yet easy-to–use.
