MBH Architects Mumbai
GROWING ROOTS IN MUMBAI
“Creating an office in my home country of India has opened so many doors – new services to offer our clients, opportunities for our staff to grow new relationships and explore different cultures, and a chance to see a worldwide presence for this firm I take so much pride in.”
- Reena Nadkarni
Working with allied teams around the world for over a decade, MBH Architects developed and fine-tuned the communication and project management core competencies necessary to optimize success across borders and time zones. In 2017, MBH decided to expand internationally and open an office in Mumbai, India, where MBH Principals Dimple Manghani and Reena Nadkarni started their architectural careers. A licensed architect in both the United States and India, Nadkarni is leading the management of the international expansion of the MBH Architects brand in India. Nadkarni will grow the 16-person office while also continuing to lead MBH’s Retail Studio in California. Her proven ability to carry out large-scale, national retail projects and programs while coordinating in both metric and imperial documentation will serve her well in this new position, helping to better serve the firm’s current clientele as well as grow its roster globally.
The new Mumbai-based branch opened in May 2018 and is an extension of the team in the US. As the market in India grows, MBH will bring its experience and knowledge to the retail sector in India and take on local projects for MBH's Global clients as well as work on projects in other sectors including hospitality.
