Kanheri Caves, Mumbai

2015-2018

An Archaeological Survey of India site located in the virgin environs of Sanjay Gandhi National Park, Mumbai presented a unique opportunity of creating ‘off the grid’ tourist amenities. Concepts of solar power, sewage treatment, composting and kitchen garden were successfully planned an implemented without increasing the existing built-up footprint. Local materials like black basalt was used in different situations keeping the environment coherent and contextual.

Facade Improvement, Amritsar

2013-2016

The facade improvement proposal initiated by the Government of Punjab and executed by PHTPB, though not the first in its vision, was the first to be successfully implemented within a short span of time. The Kshetra New Delhi studio was involved at the inception stage and helped conceptualize the design and approach to the facade improvement idea. 4Kms of street facades belonging to private/ non-private entities and individuals were documented physically and organized into typologies. Facade elements were identified which would eventually help create harmony and coherence in the otherwise chaotic streetscape. The studio helped quantify all these concepts and ideas into estimates and drawings, but was not involved in the ground execution of the project.
