Typology | Residential
Status | On-going
The residence is located at Sardar Patel Marg and the plot is adjoining the Malcha Marg residential colony. It’s the diplomatic hub of Delhi and hosts the majority of foreign embassies. Since the site comes under Lutyens zone, the clients wanted to renovate the project keeping only the structural shell and changing everything else. The proposed design intent is to plan a layout that addresses the current needs of the residence and also gives the façade a contemporary modern Indian identity. The design has been conceptualized keeping in mind the already existing structure. The key design challenge has been that the site and the building have a lot of angles and therefore the design approach was to create a clean and simple space while creating openness.
The ground floor is planned as the public area with sequential distribution of spaces from the front entry area to the lobby to the drawing/dining room while creating an open free-flowing space. The first floor is designed as a private area with bedrooms and a family lounge. The building façade has been designed to have an earthy modern Indian style so that it merges with the existing setting and the landscape.
