Kasuali, Himachal Pradesh
7000 sq m
Kasauli is a cantonment and town, located in Solan district in the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh. Set aside from the noisy city life, it is a development for those who seek shelter on a site enriched by natural elements, topographical features with the delightful presence of extensive flora and fauna, with some only native to the hills of Kasauli. The design explores the progression of ‘opening up’ - from earth to sky. The building itself unfolds and opens up like a flower from the heart of the building, to its extremities. Guests journey from a warm and ‘gravitated’ ambience at the lobby, to a more open, exposed, and lighter atmosphere as they move further up or out in the building.
