About us

ZED Lab is a Delhi-based, research-driven, architecture and interior design studio specializing in net-zero energy buildings since 2009. With sustainability at the core of its design process, and architecture as its synthesis, ZED Lab works towards improving the quality of life in symbiosis with the environment through the holistic lens of research, design, and construction. Through its award-winning projects across residential, hospitality, institutional, commercial, and industrial sectors, the studio seeks to push the envelope for economically viable building systems, optimized for energy savings.


As vision facilitators, idea generators, and design integrators, ZED Lab works collaboratively to formulate strategies that draw inspiration from the Indian vernacular for present and future needs. ZED Lab’s design approach is informed by a deep and innate understanding and application of age-old bioclimatic wisdom, using cutting-edge technological tools such as parametric design. Through climatic studies, simulation models, custom software, and physical experiments, the studio explores every facet of design that goes on to determine the nature, shape, and form of a project, making it uniquely positioned to deliver long-lasting and impactful solutions.


The studio’s work has been published in leading national and international publications and has won numerous awards

At AA, Sachin’s key research interests were passive and low energy solutions for high-rise residential buildings in a composite climate which would act as a typology to improve the energy efficiency of the existing buildings and can be adopted by most architects during the course of their design. These concerns were also central to his research on Lightweight Facades - A solution for buildings in hot climate along with a written paper titled “Water as Thermal Mass”.
