WAYANAD, HEAVEN UNEARTHED

Wayanad is less of a place and more of an emotion to be experienced. of rock and tree serenading each other, of meandering stream and the presence of nature in every square foot.

The result is a set of soulful private residences that co-opt their immediate environment into their construct.
