Residence on Ganges


Client: Memani E&Y
Master Planner & Architect: Morphogenesis
Area: 1.80 Acres
Status: Completed in 2012

Situated at an edge with a seventy feet drop to the Ganges in the wilderness of Raiwala, near Rishikesh, the site provided a perfect setting for a tropical forest feel around the residence. Dense groves of wild, local mature trees, shrubbery and ground covers, rustic flagstone pathways, exposed random rubble retaining walls, sitting spaces and an infinity edge lap-pool were created. The dense plantation opens up with a breathtaking view, converting this place into a contemplative paradise of its own.
