Set within the western ghats of Maharashtra, Radhanagri is a picturesque forested setting known also because of the famous Radhanagri dam built by the British. The Ingle family owns a small bungalow that was once a British engineers site residence during the construction of the dam. The project brief was to renovate and repair this facility and make it rentable to initiate their hospitality business in the area.

An old garage cum store-house was renovated to house two rooms with attached toilets, a dining area and a kitchen. Additional facilities for storage and living spaces for their staff was part of the brief.

The images outline the process of restoring the facility using minimal resources and yet retaining and enhancing the character of the place.
