A Respite House Amid Nature

The picturesque village of Baldeyan is near the erstwhile British summer capital of Shimla. Famous for its subtropical highland climate, the area is a popular tourist destination, providing respite from the fierce summer heat within a reasonable drive from the plains. The project was conceived as a second home for a small family based in Delhi that chose the site for its magnificent views and a seasonal stream that runs through a ravine near the property. Sited above the road, the brief was to have valley views from all the principal living spaces. This became the parti of the plan – two parallel linear volumes perpendicular to the view.

Eco-friendly Workspace

Located within a bustling office complex in Noida, the project is everything a normal office is not. It is not an ‘in your face’ modern, contemporary and swanky office, as one would imagine it should be, as it houses the owner of the IHDP (International Home Deco Park). Rather, it is an antithesis to the expected office style look and feel.
