10 years ago on 28th November 2007, Lewis & Hickey India was incorporated as a company with the opening of the office in Mumbai with just 3 employees. Director Dipak Kotecha moved from L&H UK in 2007 to the dense suburb of Andheri with a clear vision to establish India operations and there has been no looking back.
Lewis & Hickey entered India to provide international-level service to retail clients in an expanding retail market. In the last decade our client base and project portfolio has grown to include master-planning, architecture, interiors and a variety of retail related design and feasibility work.
The retail team members are often flying across the country for projects and working under intense time pressure for quick roll-outs. They have completed 250+ outlets for jewellery stores, apparel & fashion retailers, F&B outlets, warehousing and service centres. The architecture & interior team on the other hand has persevered through extensive design dialogues in a turbulent property market to complete small and large scale projects spanning 5-7 years with a recent count of 90% projects on site and under construction.
The office has seen a transformation with a dedicated leadership team who have grown with the office since the start and supported MD Brijesh Kanabar in taking over the reins in 2011. The office vibe reflects the passion of the enthusiastic team with a music-filled design studio, whole-hearted celebration of festivals with involvement of all staff members and the new favourite art-wall with fresh artwork by the staff every week!
