We operate out of a beautiful pent-house studio located in Indira Nagar, Bangalore. The same warmth, openness and serenity associated with Dwar’s eco-villas can be experienced in this inspiring workspace.
Dwar is committed to bettering lives by ensuring that not only monetary consideration,
but also prosperity trickles down to all those involved in the construction process. Financial incentives and
health care benefits are offered to all our employees, labourers and artisans. More importantly,
our connection with our workforce doesn’t end with paying them fairly; we go a step further by investing in the
improvement of their skills, helping them build better homes for themselves and educating their children.
All our landscaping is done by a company run entirely by differentially-abled people. We support local artisans
thereby aiding cottage industries. We provide young artists with a platform so they can showcase their work.
Artists supported by us have greatly benefitted from their association with Dwar, and grown to become established
names in their field. To keep this cycle going we’re always open to supporting young
talent who are looking for a platform for their work. We believe that our growth should spell theirs.
A conscious and continuous effort is made to find ways of spreading wealth and
wellbeing to the community that we are a part of.
