Della Tecnica High on Innovation, Creativity and Sustainability

Della Enclave

Renowned maverick architect Jimmy Mistry has proved that it is not necessary to take a degree from an elite design school to set new benchmarks in design but it is experience that is more important and also the biggest strength to grow. A mechanical engineer by qualification he shakes the roots of conventional architectural wisdom and carves a niche for himself. His passion for work extends beyond the ordinary, which can be seen in his all projects.

He started his career by doing contracting jobs and executing projects, then worked with the Italian design firm for three years as an importer. That was the turning point of his life which gave him abundance of experience and real understanding of building materials, executions, design and layout. After getting sufficient expertise, he decided to enter into the field of interior design by doing turnkey projects and then finally into the space of architecture.
