Umaid Heritage

Umaid Heritage Elevation controls require the use of local Jodhpur stone to be expressed as the primary building material. Design Atelier worked out various elements for stone construction, for expression in screens, blocks and flutes to build a contemporary form that responds to the high sun and which gives the form an unusual presence in light. Natural stone preserves the unique local character, adds to the aesthetic appeal of stability, grandeur and continuity of style in the construction. Not only is local stone sustainable, its versatility of use, enduring life cycle, low maintenance and 100% recyclable qualities qualify it as a useful green material.
