Born in India, Jasmit Singh Rangr spent the first part of his childhood on the coast of the Indian Ocean, before moving to London. He was educated at Saint Paul’s School, focusing on Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. During undergraduate studies at Yale University, he was strongly encouraged to pursue Architecture after an introductory class in the subject. He returned to the Yale Graduate School of Architecture, and received the Anne C. Garland award for design with his Master of Architecture degree.
During a summer while enrolled in graduate school, he worked at renowned modernist architect Joseph Allen Stein’s office in New Delhi. After graduate studies, he quickly began managing projects at Stamberg Aferiat Architecture that would be published nationally and internationally. At Gluckman Mayner Architects, Jasmit worked on the design for the Mori Arts Center, a new world-class art museum in the heart of Tokyo. Subsequently, his work on the Bronx Charter School for the Arts at Weisz + Yoes Architecture won several awards and added to an extensive list of published and awarded projects.
In 2004, Jasmit founded Rangr Studio, with a commitment to maintain a deep personal involvement with every project, and a mission to create architecture in harmony with its site. In 2006, the commission for Casa Kimball in the Dominican Republic allowed Jasmit to design for a climate very much like his childhood homes in India. The resulting project gained international acclaim, with publication in over 20 countries and an International Property Award.
Rangr Studio's recently completed projects include houses in Southampton, NY, published in the New York Times and on NBC, and Milan, NY. Current projects are located in New York City, Costa Rica, Berkeley, California and Gallatin, New York.
