Hush Café, at Hyderabad, by D2dArchitects

Hush Café, at Hyderabad, by D2dArchitects

Masked by the concrete jungle of Madhapur in Hyderabad. The Hush cafe is an off-beat sight to its contrasting surroundings. Nestled within the lanes of a corporate and residential neighborhood, this cafe beams warmth that one seeks to experience after a tiring day at work or a quick hangout session with friends over the weekend. The location of this recreational spot in the city is expedient to the ease of access for its users. The Hush Cafe is creating its niche in the conglomerate of cafes scattered in the locality. – D2d Architects

Rejuvenation of Howard Plaza – The Fern, Agra, India, by ConceptSG Ltd

Rejuvenation Project such as the Howard Plaza is perhaps a glimpse into the fate of many buildings in the near future. (fig 1)  As countries develop, new builds seem to pop up everywhere, but once this brown field development starts to saturate and the economic growth stagnates, these buildings need to be revitalised. This is a sustainable solution, in-fact multitude of buildings in London are allowed to be rejuvenated with additional area(FAR) to attract investors.
