Wilderness Retreat at Jawai

Jawai, Rajasthan  |  2022 - ongoing 

The project brief is to make a small boutique resort in the rocky landscapes of Jawai, Rajasthan. 

The strategy with the master planning for the retreat comes from the landscape of the site. Situated in between of forest area, rocky landscape, a dry river bed and farming land beside and breath-taking panoramic view of hills the site offers a context like no other. The master plan is conceived as a walk through the site in a fort wall. The attempt is to root oneself to the memory landscape of the Rajasthan. The fort wall connects to different steel bridges with a walk to the different spaces, each offering a special view points to the site. With the entire design lifted from ground, the attempt is to keep the ground undisturbed as much as possible and allow it to breathe.
