Architect Rakhi Makwana

Achiever's Success Story

“Rakhi Makwana, Founder, Studio Rakhi M”

Rakhi is an award-winning designer and the Founder of an Architectural and Interior Design Studio based out of Mumbai. She holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Architecture from Sir J.J. College of Architecture. Since childhood, she has dreamt of being an entrepreneur. Now, with over two decades of experience, she has started her own studio, spearheading into a largely male-dominated segment.

The first ten years of one’s career are extremely crucial and lay the foundation of a lasting system of strength and value. It was committed hard work sprinkled with a bit of luck that gave her opportunities to work on and lead prestigious projects.

 Aditya Birla Group HQ, New Era School, Motilal Oswal HQ, RCP (Building Number-1), Palladium Mall, Marriott Courtyard Agra were projects that brought vital experience and exposure to different segments.

Since opening her studio, she has also worked with clients like The Phoenix Mills Ltd, All Cargo Logistics, Aditya Birla Group, Reliance High-end Retail, JSW and Nayasa with outstanding creativity, commitment, leadership qualities  and professionalism. 

Rakhi has an interest in new materials, craft and technology and strives to incorporate them in her work. As a professional, she derives immense satisfaction from adopting a hands-on approach on all her projects. This, Rakhi believes, helps design spaces which are more refined in terms of proportions, compositions and emotional recollect.

The wealth of experience that she brings to the table helps her tackle challenges with ease, provide out of the box solutions to clients, innovate to solve traditional challenges, derive the best possible value proposition from vendors/ partners and ensure client delight.

One of her most striking qualities is the versatility with which she handles different styles across genres and scales. From Hospitality and Commercial to Residential and Retail, there is nothing she can’t pull off with elegance! Of course, while these are essential qualities in an architect, being an entrepreneur and running a business is a different skill set altogether.

Success in the service industry is measured by client-testimonials. This requires constantly inspiring your team so that they understand work ethics and deliver quality end-products, building trust with the client. 

Her ability to think out of the box, her resilience and her determination are the key qualities that have ensured her success.

Entrepreneurs like Barbara Corcoran, Sara Blakely, Allison Maslan and J.J. Virgin are her inspirations. She believes in always looking at the brighter side as that is where opportunities lie.
