Nestled in the Himalayas, this is a private getaway in Ramgargh, Nainital. The various levels of the house were envisioned to blend into the landscape, thereby resonating the undulating backdrop. The roofs become ramps, mimicking the terrain of the mountains around. The entry opens out into a triple height space, formed by the ramps that negotiate the level difference and also define the chief façade of the building. Seasonal plantations, small plum trees, shrubs and orchards adorn the terrain in front of the house.
