SPACIUX DESIGN CONTEST

Get Inspired by Great Designs

We are all in the midst of a challenge that we didn’t see coming. While we all stay safe and healthy at home to combat the challenge of COVID-19, everything we know and do has moved online. Be it entertainment, knowledge or activity, we look at the online space of inspiration. Spaciux.com is humbled to have been doing for years before this crisis hit us. While stay at home and in the company of our loved ones, we would like to extend one of our brand-new endeavours in collectively creating something together. A democratic project that we want to do ‘with’ you. We at Spaciux.com have interesting news to share.

The story of Spaciux- an ecosystem for Architecture industry in itself is not a regular one

We started with the means to bring the work of architects all over to the common man. An aim to bridge the gap between a client and their architect. A chance for architects to promote their own work and with pride. And to do so a web series is the norm today. They reach a far wider audience than blockbuster movies on the big screen and they explore facets of everyday lives. A simplifier for the audience, about what goes behind the scene in creating some of the most beautiful spaces in India. Shot aesthetically and brimming with emotions as it takes us through the minds and hearts of the architects and inmates too. With a successful stint on Social Media, both Facebook and Instagram, Spaciux has also taken India Architecture to the international stage through Amazon Prime US and UK with the unique Web series – Spaciux Incredible Architects.
