Architectural Designer

‘We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.’ – Aristotle

I inherited structures in my genes; becoming an architect was not an option, but these words from Aristotle made it my first love. Hi, I’m Komal Nandanwar aka Dolly, and I graduated from Nagpur University, India with my Bachelor’s in Architecture. My passion to learn from the best then brought me to The University of Texas at Arlington, 9000 miles away from where my soul existed. At UTA, I received my Master’s in Architecture, which I believe has added more value and objectivity to my knowledge and skills.

Architecture has been my passion since the age of 7. My father is my inspiration; he designed our home and I still remember how excited and happy he was while doing it. I used to go with him on site and loved to see the design on paper coming alive. It was then that I knew what I wanted to do when I grow up.
Studio+ gave me an opportunity to learn more about planning and designing healthcare facilities. Working in healthcare touches so many souls and I know that we are making a significant difference in the lives of those we touch, by providing a comfortable ambiance in their most challenging times.
I truly must say I am proud to be part of a company which values their employees, encourages professional growth, and consider Studio+ one big happy family.

When not at work, I enjoy spending time exploring southwest Florida, learning different cultures, making new friends, cooking Indian food and doing yoga. I also love traveling and reconnecting with old friends and family.
