One of the nine bungalows designed for this estate, the Bungalow draws its plan and the inspiration for its form from the location. The location is a steep hillside and opens onto views of the Coimbaotre ranges, a water fall and the tea garden. The location is that of a fallen labour shed and drying yard. All the material from the debris was used back in this building.

At Tashkent, the Uzbekistan capital we board an amazing Soviet era YAK 40 (Yakoliv) for Termez. The plane smells of Vodka and has a public bus feel to it. No need to be careful about overhead luggage falling on to your heads, the Yak 40 has its total luggage space (both hand and check in baggage) at the back. You enter in from the tail. The pilot enters from the back after all passengers have boarded, you stand up in respect and sit down only after he has taken to his cabin. – Design Dalda
