  1. This project is not designed by DFI. The original concept and winning entry was submitted to Delhi PWD by a JV between Mathur and Kaprey Associates, Design Business Collaborative LLP and B&S Engineering Consultant. Here is the link of the presentation:

These precincts, more than individual structures, puts forward each city’s uniqueness. Heritage awareness is certainly increasing on paper with more nominations of World Heritage Site ensembles.

Located in Ayroor, Kerala this family home that sits on the banks of the Chalakudy river is nothing less than a mini-ecosystem within itself — self-sufficient and symbiotic.
