Shehrebanu Nooruddin graduated from the Dr. B.N. College of Architecture, Pune, where she was awarded a Bachelors in Architecture and Interior Design, First Class with Distinction.
While at college, she co-founded “Live on Katta”, a platform for students to engage in informal discussions with established designers.
She worked for two years with Khadija Tuk Kubra at Design Options in Karachi before joining the Open Door Design Studio in 2018. In 2020, Shehrebanu founded the Open Door Design Workshop with the intention to create a platform for research into alternate materials, specifically looking at reimagining waste to create building materials. Since its inception the workshop has been dabbling with experiments in waste wood, waste paper and waste plastic bottles, and has created a series of small products and interventions with these. Along with architecture, research and the design of small objects, she enjoys writing about architecture and nature.
