eightvillage continues the ethos of the Ashtagrama. We are a place-based architecture and planning firm seeking to have positive-impact in communities. We strive to bring together facets of architecture, urban design, and ecology to collaborate and help foster a sense of place through an empathetic and place-driven process.
In addition to our expertise in architecture and urban design, our firm brings a design process that matches the team’s empathetic and story-driven approach to the project. We also hope to also bring our unique models of community engagement to drive the execution of the project.
