This wordpress blog is created by White Ant Studio (previously FOA Studio) to feature current and past architectural works and to post glimpses of the life around us and the things that keep us going. The blog is seen as a more dynamic extension of the existing website of the studio publishing not only the studio’s own work but also architectural and cultural works and news that White Ant Studio / FOA Studio finds interesting and inspiring.

White Ant Studio is a design unit based in the International City of Auroville and headed by Fabian Ostner. Born and educated in Germany, Fabian works since several years in India and – after three years in Bangalore (where he worked with a renowned architectural firm as project architect) – has relocated to this exciting place on India’s eastern coastline, just 150km south of Chennai. Here the studio shares a beautiful structure with another Auroville design unit, Castelino Marchese Architects. From this quiet location White Ant Studio works on a range of architectural and interior works in varying configurations. Among the companies with whom the studio has collaborated in the recent past is the team of Fountainhead Design, a large and expanding architectural practice based in Hyderabad and Vijay Nambiar Design, an upcoming interior design studio based out of Bangalore.
Attached here a short CV of Fabian.
