  • Description


    Hi I am Dolly, I run an organisation partnering with my Architect Husband. We work on sustainability in all walk of Life. SMLA (Sustainable Models to life thro’ Architecture - A Transdisciplinary Approach). Already a team of 7 members work in our firm as Associates. We would love to host someone adding value to our organisation thro their expertise.

    We live in an apartment in a beautiful locality in chennai with our two wonderful girls. We cook and work on zero waste house set up. Almost everything goes for recycling & upscaling. It would be great exchange of knowledge.

    We cook all cuisines but not much seafoods. We would love people who loves to enjoy cooking with us.

    Our office is at cyclable distance from our home.

    Almost on all good days we start the day with family prayers & go for cycling & walking, then we go with our daughter’s school. After this we look forward on dedicated time for our organisation.

    My husband traveled during his youth & share lovely stories about people and culture in Netherlands & Amsterdam where he majorly stayed and interned. So as a family we love meeting new people from beautiful cultures.
