Sameepan Thomas

Founder & Managing Partner

Born and raised in Allepey, Sameepan is the Founder and driving force behind Environment Innovation, an architecture and development company with presence in Tamil Nadu and Kerala. His passion for sustainability, nature, design and “organic” architecture has shaped the firm’s approach to architecture as a tool for creating and enabling enriching lifestyles. During the course of his career, he has designed and led the construction of one-of-a-kind-lifestyle community layouts, celebrity homes, luxury resorts and commercial buildings.

Though an Electronics and Communications Engineer by education, Sameep’s passion was always architecture. After graduation, he had a stint of 10 years working as a software engineer in leading IT companies. In 2008, he decided to give up his career in IT and pursue his life’s dual passions, Architecture and Entrepreneurship. He founded the firm, Environment Innovation in 2010.

Over a career spanning 12 years, Sameep has designed several highly context sensitive, climate responsive spaces and lifestyles that redefine living experiences and touch the daily lives of his clients. When asked about his distinctive architectural style, he says he finds embracing any one style highly restrictive. Architecture for him is an expression of his love for nature, a chance to experiment and play with terrain and an opportunity to play a part in making people’s dreams come true.

Sameep also is on the board of a few technological companies and enjoys being part of the journey of transforming promising start ups in varied fields to self-sustaining profitable business models. He loves to spend his free time with children, growing food, cooking and playing tennis.
