The application of rigorous design principles, combined with creative flexibility, sets the foundation for successful buildings in every category.

At Pathangay Architects, were problem solvers who take the time to feel and understand every space we attempt to transform. As artists, our goal is to take this understanding and create something truly unique, inviting, memorable, and functional.

If you understand structure, theres no limit to the design possibilities. ?Navin Pathangay

Your project deserves our love and attention.

Our philosophy
As an art form, architecture blends creativity with a sensitivity to the environment. With that in mind, buildings are most successful when they inspire the larger community while helping their human occupants reach day-to-day goals with energy and enthusiasm.

Our work ethic
We pride ourselves on the level of detail and innovation we bring to each project. We believe these qualities are necessary to create custom structures that can be built with maximum efficiency and exceed all end users expectations.

Navin Pathangay, AIA

A world traveler, Navin is continually inspired by the colors, textures and materials of different cultures and localities. Throughout his career, Navin has worked on projects in Africa, Europe, and the United States. He was originally inspired to be an Architect at seven years old while walking through his newly built home on Mauritius Island off of the coast of Africa. He felt moved by its architecture and design. The Architect of the home, a family friend, took Navin under his wing and the rest is history.

Navin obtained his Bachelor of Design in Architecture at University of Florida and Masters Degree in Architecture at University of Michigan.

Prior to starting his own company, Navin worked as a project designer for Kadhusin Associates in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and as a project architect/manager for DWL Architects and Planners in Phoenix, Arizona.
