Java Rain Resort
Chikmagalur, Karnataka | 2017
The site (5 acres) is a part of a large coffee estate. The landscape design weaves the pre-sited buildings and roads into a series of transitions. Buffers between cottages create a contrast with the existing silver oak plantation. The attempt is to create a response to the natural quality of the place- a coffee forest.
Zoning of private and public activity, trails, exterior zones and site lighting form the core of the landscape masterplan.
The distant vista of Mullayanagiri hill forms an element of discovery in the site plan.
