Shimla is located in the lofty and mysterious ranges of the Himalayas. It is the capital of the Himachal Pradesh. The best thing about this city is the fact even if it is one of the tourist destinations in India; it has still relatively untouched by globalization and commercialization, which is prevalent among the other tourist destinations. It has retained the old-world charm and is very different from the other Indian states. The culture of Shimla is the perfect blend of modern thoughts and traditional values. Shimla has a very rich cultural heritage that is rural and traditional.
The Shimla township development shall acknowledge its past traditions uniquely to develop a suitable platform for Shimla’s dramatic move into the future - To transcend many of its heritage, music, dance, and religion and to allow the people to be a part of significant and iconic development.
The design shall respect the cultural heritage, arts, and crafts as well as traditions of Shimla integrating the design of contemporary architecture and connecting to the senses of an existing fabric of natural and post-colonial Shimla which is another key part of how we have developed our scheme.
We consider this as a good and new approach for Shimla in conceiving the new blueprint for the future.
The design shall also aim to create a picturesque township similar to the famous Summer Hills township that is located 5 km from the famous Shimla Ridge. This hill is carpeted by rich greenery that offers breathtaking views from the top. Summer Hill is also a part of the 7 hills that make Shimla, so it is sure to leave all overwhelmed by its beauty.
By marrying the modern, contemporary, and progressive architecture and assimilating it with the natural fabric of Shimla, the project will not only reflect the traditions and cultural heritage of Shimla but also show a modern, innovative architecture which will be a hybrid of modern superlative architecture and Shimla’s vast natural vistas.
