Get to know more about Jaipal Singh, Owner:

What is the inspiration behind the business? Or what is your personal inspiration?

Inspiration is what drives our team. We believe in the power of architecture to elevate our lives. Our name stems from the 'chaatrik' songbird found in eastern mythology. The unique songbird has a hole in its beak preventing it from drinking water from a pool so spends its life singing up to the clouds for a single drop of rain. With groundwater as the metaphor for filth, and rainwater the metaphor for purity, ultimately, the life of the chaatrik reminds us to rise above the everyday and look upward for inspiration. As Architects, we are unique and unlike the others as we seek solutions that inspire and elevate.

What are the three most important things about your business? 

Our aim is to inspire our clients, their contractors and every vendor on the project by:

1) delivering excellent architectural drawings

2) developing innovative design solutions

3) building meaningful long-lasting relationships

If you could explain your business in the simplest way, how would you?

Building a more beautiful world.

What is your key to success?

Being humble while being awesome.

What is one of your favorite client stories?

Working with Mr. and Mrs. Blink, we built a new walk-out master bedroom suite onto an existing single-family residence for Grandpa Blink who had recently lost Grandma Blink and could no longer live on his own. We developed the design around Grandpa’s lifestyle, his favorite chair, his bedroom furniture, and added a few moments of Grandma’s art collection with custom bathroom tile and architectural detailing. Needless to say, the final result brought the entire family to tears.

What is one of your favorite projects you have worked on?

The Reds Hall of Fame Shop – a new free-standing structure near the Fan Zone plaza deck in Great American Ballpark.

Best advice anyone has given you?

Under promise and over deliver.

Do you have any special services you offer Montgomery Chamber of Commerce members?

What is one of your favorite quotes?

“The only distinction I can make is that my botches end up in the bottom of my wastebasket.”  - Howard Roark, The Fountainhead

 If you could change one thing about the world what would it be?

Everyone and everything would be so much better if humanity could operate from a lens of compassion towards itself and the environment.
