Shanmugam Associates:Raga Svara 专注于与周围环境相结合的疗愈、美学、哲学和生态健康。Raga 的标志 “Pause”(暂停)寓意着所有进入这个绿色天堂的人都能有意识地放空、沉思、倾听身体与自然的协同作用,并以教育的方式恢复活力。有了这样一个清晰的愿景,留给建筑师的任务就是尊重自然,尽量减少对现有景观的干预。

Shanmugam Associates:Raga Svara, as in the words of its founders, focuses on therapeutic, aesthetic, philosophical and ecological wellbeing of oneself in conjunction with the surroundings. Raga’s logo “Pause” indicates all those who enter this green haven to consciously pause in time, reflect, listen to the body in synergy with nature and get rejuvenated in an educational way. With such a clear vision for Raga, the onus on the architects was to make minimal interventions in the existing landscape and have nature takes precedence.

The linearity of the site, old trees with huge canopies, agricultural land, location adjacent to Rajkot- Bhavnagar highway and natural site terrain were primary factors that steered the architects to take a biophilic approach to design. Zoning was done with relevance to huge banyan and peepal trees at site.





Architectural language was delineated by exploring basic aspects of roof, wall and floors. Floors interweaved inside and outside with landscape; walls with maximum transparency to enjoy lush vegetation; and roof being simple, horizontal exposed concrete slabs.

The reception at the entry welcomes with a landscape extending to the roof, inviting one to take a walk and have a glimpse of the entire property. The entire roof is hidden with hanging curtain creepers which is literally a green curtain while entering the lobby, hoping to set the initial tone.

Gigantic trees encapsulate the restaurant, library and pool by defining a space of congregation. The library has been located right under the banyan (Ficus benghalensis) that is eponymous to learning.

Inspiration from stepped wells of Gujarat and requirement of sufficient shaded areas, aided in evolving the swimming pool area that has symmetrically punctured ceiling and granite steps.

疗愈室位于 Raga Svara 的中心地带,坐落在建筑的后端,是一处隐蔽的空间。入口门厅与店内的马尼拉罗望子树提供了阴凉,也为空间洒下了迷人的光景;悬浮式屋顶让自然光渗入宽敞的疗愈室内,迎接着顾客的到来。

Heart of Raga Svara, the treatment rooms have been tucked in at the property’s rear end to provide seclusion. An entry foyer and boutique with manila tamarind (Pithecellobium dulce) offering canopy, ravishing landscape filled restrooms and floating roofs allowing natural light to seep into large sized therapy rooms welcome Raga’s patrons.

Raga 的 20 套豪华住宅环绕着一个社区花园和环形桥建造,在辣木(别名鼓槌树)种植区后面可以看到美丽的夕阳。别墅拥有独立的私人花园和游泳池,隐藏在禅意花园后方。所有住宿空间都自然通风,并配有宽敞的私人花园。

The luxurious 20-key Raga residences, were built around a community garden and circumambulatory bridge, that frames a vista of the western sun behind Moringa cultivation. Cottages have their own private garden with pool and are tucked in behind the zen gardens. All restrooms are naturally ventilated with large private gardens.

项目施工过程伴随着三年的疫情,材料采购和执行方面的挑战贯穿始终。Raga 室内设计的特点是围绕四块质朴的氛围板、当地采购的天然石材以及由实心柚木和藤条编制的定制家具。

An asymmetrical mandala pattern, that was created as a central aesthetic branding identity, is subtly blended in the look book, signage, exposed concrete ceiling patterns, wall murals and flooring.

Sourcing local material and executional challenges were integral part of construction for Raga that went through three pandemic waves. A rustic mood board created around four Indian Ragas, regionally sourced natural stones and customized furniture made from solid teak and rattan are characteristics of Raga’s interior design.

蜿蜒在葱郁景观中的小路、健康至上的古吉拉特美食、建筑与绿地之间的过渡带、众多宁静的思考角落以及专属打造的有意义的休养地,这些都是 Raga Svara 所提供的服务。

Raga Svara 总占地 25 英亩,整个项目团队齐心协力,小心翼翼地保护着场地的景观和现有的生物多样性,打造出了 “体验胜于阅读”的绿色天堂。

Meandering pathways amidst lush landscapes, delicious Gujarati cuisine with emphasis on wellbeing, blur between the built and green spaces, plethora of quiet corners to ruminate and customized meaningful retreats are some of the offerings by Raga Svara.

Treading carefully with the landscape and existing bio-diversity of a 25-acre farm, the entire team worked in tandem to create Raga Svara that is best experienced than read.
