The skyline is marked distinctly by large numbers of white iconic “Chhatris”, densely populating the historical neighbourhoods of Udaipur, known as the “City of Lakes”. These captivating canopies, located on roof tops are adorned by ornated slender column-dome structures and seem to capture the lake breeze and celebrate the idyllic atmosphere particularly of the early dawn and dusk hours.
The K Residence is a reflection on the genius loci. Perched 9.0 m above the edge of the main road, winding around the Fateh Sagar Lake, with faint panoramic view of the surrounding Aravalli Range, three interconnected white pavilions, made of precast textured white concrete and that house diverse residential activities, are organized around a sparsely planted garden . The design ensures that all habitable spaces have a scenic view of the Lake in the north whilst receive southern winter sun through linear courts, inserted between all three pavilions.
