This residential development of 4 villas is set in Lutyens’ Delhi, not far from the Old City of Mughal Delhi. The project takes its inspiration from past traditions of arts and crafts of the Mughal and Colonial-era. A strong visual identity was developed for the 4 villas, set within a common visual idiom. A play of volumes and framing of fenestrations invokes sequential revelations as one moves through the space. The perspectives, typical of Mughal architecture are reflected in a series of choreographed views through landscape spaces and pavilion-like verandahs. Each villa is associated with a particular ornamental tree representative of the famous tree lined avenues of Lutyens’ Delhi. This also inspired a pattern language that is an undertone bringing uniqueness to each villa. The facade is a modern interpretation of an artistic and fine metal cloak for the body of the villa whose geometries and proportions create rhythm whilst the actual artistic rendition is inspired by traditional metal and enamel work. 2 Hailey Road is a conscious exercise in Identity creation through re-interpretation of the resplendent arts and crafts of the bygone eras.

2 Hailey Road, New Delhi
