Namrata Kashyap, alias Kumar, Landscape Architect and Town Planner is an alumni of School of Planning and Architecture, New Delhi.

NKLD started as a one woman enterprise in 2004 and has morphed into a sustainable practice. The main focus is on site-specific design based on a detailed analysis of ground situations. NKLD uses technology as a tool to achieve the design brief. We borrow richly from ancient traditional design practices that have stood the test of time.
Resilient Landscape Planning and Design being the main focus of the company, NKLD offers a way forward for communities. Long term resilience is about continuously bouncing back and regenerating. It’s about learning how to cope with the ever-changing 'new normal' in an era where climate change can cause traditional built systems to fail. Adaptive multi-layered systems can maintain their vital functions and are often the more cost-effective and practical solutions.
The company has dealt with and designed many large scale projects such as:
•Bhartiya City, Bangalore
•JSW Township, Bellary
•Wellspun City, Anjar
Landscape Architecture is a specialized field of architectural science that mainly deals with the exterior environment of the building. It is also a specialized art form, because it involves working with natural assets, that are easily the utmost embellished, and yet, the most heterogeneous entities known to mankind.
