Haveli Dharampura, published in IIID Design Excellence Awards, August 2017

The project in Dharampura is the first of its kind in the walled city of Delhi which aims in the restoration & rehabilitation of a 135-year-old Haveli (built-in 1880) into a hospitality project with 14 rooms, a spa, a museum, 2 shops & a restaurant. We started this project looking at a broken structure that was declared an inhabitable space for living by the government of Delhi. Without any plans or drawings, we had to develop a program even before starting the design which involved the building survey, to prepare measured drawings & structural repair & strengthening of the building. The designing process involved a very elaborate 2 years of research on the whole urban fabric of Chandni Chowk.
