The Navira Team
Navira: Found and named after the team of three- Nagesh, Vijaya and Raj - directors of the FHD group, one of India’s leading design firms, was started with a shared vision to provide an alternative lifestyle to people today, a lifestyle that not only is technologically progressive but one which revives cultures and brings people together. Passion for 'change' in the soceity today and as well as in the ways of the industry is the primordial force that pushed the team Navira to start a group that can redefine the rules of the game.
Also, having been in very close quarters to the construction industry and watching the growth spurt of Hyderabad, protecting the bio conservation zone has been of paramount importance to the Navira team. Who then constituted the idea of a community of people to own it, enjoy living close to the elements, to create a force to protect the it.
Nagesh who started and spearheaded the Fountainhead Design Group has a varied set of expertise in Design, is a natural learner and a self-taught leader. With over 20 years of extensive experience after his Diploma in Architecture, having done projects ranging from residential developments, mixed-use developments, commercial complexes, hospitality, retail, interiors etc; it was Nagesh’s vision to develop a project that would be sustainable and net-zero in its resource consumption.
Nagesh strongly believes in the philosophy that alone we go fast, but together we go far and applies it in every step of the project right from religiously sticking to the core concept of the project to hiring all the consultants required for the necessary expertise. Abreast with the latest technologies, he works vigorously to bring together various technologies and disciplines to make the project a synergistic whole.
Vijaya shares the vigor to develop the Naāndi farm as an edible yet aesthetically pleasing farm. From sourcing native species of the wide variety of flora and fauna on the farm to sourcing the best vendors for quality hardware on the tight rope of budgets, Vijaya balances it all.
With over 20 years of experience in the field of interior designing and as the head of the Interior design team at FHD, she has an eye for detail and a sensitivity towards color, fixtures and finishes that let her take impeccable decisions on the spot.
Raj as we call him is not a definition driven person, which helped him design the marketing for India’s first sustainable collective farming community in the most non-traditional ways. An MS in Lighting design; Raj is the quarterback for our Marketing and Sales team driving it with passion and vigor.
