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.
