Studio vision

Spaces and Design was established with the intent to create environs that epitomise harmony, aesthetics, and optimum functionality, thereby enriching the life of the users in their habitat. A strong believer of giving each project its own identity, Pooja works within the mandates of the site, budget, and the clients’ lifestyle and needs. These form the robust framework that drives her well-honed design and execution process.

Design ethos

The concept of ‘Interior Architecture’ underpins every design endeavour by Spaces and Design. The studio is renowned for integrating architecture and interiors to create an inviting ‘inside-out’ experience. Based on simple circulation plans, the spaces flow into each other, highlighting the studio’s inherent style of capturing the beauty of simplicity and symmetry.

Our Milestones


First Award

Spaces and Design won the best design at Decowood Design Diva 2017 in the Category of Retail.


First Appearance in Media

Spaces and Design was featured in t2 for its design of Pitter-Platter flagship store at Kolkata’s Quest mall.

The use of the colours like black, white and golden adds to that old world charm, luxury and the elegance which is required for this type of store. The black & white diagonal flooring, the chandelier at the ceiling all has been meticulously planned and intricately positioned to exude a grand look and feel of the bygone era.


Making this the first

Pooja started her career with Mr. Sunil Tainwala, Aarteg as a designer in 2000.
