Annexe, Kalra Estate, Shimla
The project was a small annexe building in front of a beautiful heritage building made by the Britishers. The challenge was immense to match the grandeur of the existing villa and not look entirely out of place.
The elements of the old villa were used in the windows to match the design of both the buildings.
The angles in the wall were chosen to maximize the sun intake in the rooms as the area is cold and have limited sun time. The angles also provides for a wider view viewing area from inside the rooms.
