Architect Suchi Reddy founded Reddymade, her diverse architecture and design practice, with a human-centric approach to design, one that assess the economic, social, environmental and cultural impacts of her work on both people and planet. Since 2002, working from her home country of India to her home base in New York city, with projects in Miami and Los Angeles, Suchi charts a course for all things Reddymade with a culturally specific, globally curious eye.

Since its inception, the firm has been lauded for its formal experimentation, its imaginative use of color and passion for innovative materials. Along with widely-praised commissions in New York, the firm’s projects extend from Los Angeles and Miami to Chennai, India.

A sophisticated ‘sense of the new’ is evident in the firm’s current work: a kinetic rain-screen facade being designed for a building in Chennai, a modular home in Beverly Hills, and a 264 unit condominium project in Sunny Isles, Florida, with lobbies designed by Karl Lagerfeld. The firm’s design that remade a former women’s prison in Manhattan into the Women’s Building, a center for the global women’s and girls rights movement, was one of thirteen finalists in the 2016 competition.

A deep interest in contemporary art informs all work from high-end interiors to architecture. In all areas of architecture and design, Reddymade’s philosophy of pushing for design breakthroughs – both formal and expressive – remains more steadfast than ever.
