He is a recipient of various National level awards including the, IIA ( Indian Institute of Architects ) as well as the IIID ( Institute of Interior Designers ) for excellence in Architecture + Interior design respectively.

In 1996 he was the recipient of the prestigious J.K. 'Architect of the Year' award. His works have been widely published in several periodicals as well as Design magazines.

His recent pre -occupations include an active involvement in the campaign, for an integrated transport plan for the city of Mumbai. He is also instrumental in revitalising public spaces and parks such as the pedestrian subway at Dhobi Talao Junction and The Pushpa Narsee Park within his own neighborhood in Juhu, Mumbai.

He strongly believes that the benefit of design should percolate to the masses, where the issue of slum housing must be treated at par with the newer infrastructure projects, rather than being left to speculative real estate developments.
