Heritage Park Redevelopment


The park is a MCD land which has been under-development given its location being in the heart of Old Delhi, placed opposite Red Fort with panoramic views of the fort and Jama Masjid (exactly behind it). It connects the Meena Bazaar area and Chawri Bazaar road to the historic places. The intension is to develop the park in two phases with the first phase being 7500 sq.m. The park has been divided into 2 major zones, hardscape entry zone and the landscape area. The design for the park had to completely reflect the historical importance and retain the cultural impact of the location with its elements and materials. The design has though a modern influence into its detailing and technique in which the materials have been used.

The journey starts right from the boundary wall which is designed with red sandstone arches and Delhi stone which reflects the architecture of Old Delhi. A person enters the hardscape area first which allows views of the red fort wall and has shaded sitting area, traditional shops and eateries. The landscape zone is designed with a walkway in the center which connects 3 areas, the Barah Dari, the sunken sitting and the open-air amphitheater. The park has been perceived and developed with intricate detailing and co-ordination between various services to bring justice to its location.
