Location: Himachal Pradesh, India

Project Work Status: Completed Projects

Project Completed: 2010

The house is located in the himalayan district of Kangra at the base of the Grand Dhauladhar mountain Range. In this highly seismic region the 2 buildings are designed as a concrete frame structure with stabilized compressed earth block being used for the walls. RKDS has been experimenting with new slate configurations that are used in the roofs of this project. This new scale like, design was developed to reduce slate overlaps, and design a better draining roof.

The front block comprising of the staff housing and the garage acts as a divide between the adjoining house and the main house, also allowing for the framing of the Dhauladhar Himalayan Mountain range view from the two main bedrooms of the house from the first floor.
