Bina Bhattacharyya brings a cosmopolitan perspective and artistic sensibility to her work at the intersection of architecture, urbanism, and landscape design.
With expertise in mixed-use master planning, residential community developments, and resort and hospitality design, Bina leads many of RAMSA's most transformative international projects. She thinks about the impact of her work at every scale, and specializes in crafting landscape strategies that complement a building's design while bolstering the surrounding urban fabric. Her projects are rooted in research and analysis, and strive for timelessness. She studies the history and traditions of the places she builds alongside the latest ideas and technologies to find innovative solutions that enrich the way people live today.
At RAMSA, Bina has designed several award-winning and widely recognized projects, including Heart of Lake, a 200,000-square-meter garden suburb in Xiamen, China that synthesizes classical western traditions and regional vernacular. In the growing city of Jinjiang, China, she led the design of AVIC Uptown, an 825,000-square-meter mixed-use development designed to accommodate a changing urban landscape. Her Hong Kong residential tower St. George's Mansion is setting a new standard for design--and for living--in the Kadoorie Hill neighborhood. Bina's ongoing projects include a 20-hectare, sustainability-minded seaside resort and a residential tower that integrates architecture and landscape to create a unique, holistic living experience.
