Smita Vijaykumar and Her ‘Nine-to-Five’ Universe

Smita Vijaykumar and Her ‘Nine-to-Five’ Universe

Smita Vijaykumar Co-founder and CEO, reNNovate, Smita Vijaykumar is a self-motivated entrepreneur who successfully moulded her passion into her profession. After completing her education as an architect, Smita began her professional career in the ‘nine-to-five’ universe, but soon after she decided to start her own venture in the arena of interior designingSmita grew up in Shimla for the larger part of her early life. She completed her B.ARCH at School of Planning and Architecture with first class. She earned the prestigious Narotam Sekhsaria Scholarship and pursued M.ARCH at Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago. Gathering a solid experience of 14 years in India and USA, Smita learned various aspects of the architecture industry and explored her passion for interior designing. Smita has worked as an architect at Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP (SOM) and with Architect Hafeez Contractor, she received the opportunity to work on massive projects with a developer like Hiranandani Gardens, Hirco Group, Infosys, Hilton group etc. Later, she joined BPTP Limited as a Senior Manager – Architecture and was a part of more than 10 platinum rated Green Building projects as a member of LEED – IGBC (Indian Green Building Council). At BPTP, she received her big break into interior designing, with work experience on Delhi’s influential persons like Harish Salve, Sandeep Bedi to name a few.

This brought her to associate with Homelane as a design partner, Design Head of their Mumbai operations. Factory finishing and speed in interior fit-outs with a designer touch intrigued her and that lead to the formation of reNNovate. Smita is a member of Council of Architects (CoA) and is a visiting faculty at JJ School of Architecture and Balwant shethe school of Architecture (NMIMS) for Design.

Smita has learned a lot about international designs during her course of experience and is positive on bringing in sustainable luxury in interior designing through reNNovate. Smita has a very modern & global aesthetic in design and looks forward to catering to people of similar taste and style.
