About us

Charrette Studio is an architecture, engineering, and urban design firm based in the Maldives. Founded in 2014, we have handled a wide range of projects from architectural and structural designs to re-imagining whole islands.

At Charrette Studio, we embrace this idea of collaboration and finding solutions in all the work we do. We commit to inspire happier communities through sustainable, livable and responsive design, and are dedicated to satisfying the needs and wants of our clients through engaging consultancies and design solutions.
