It is a corner plot with two adjoining streets in the beautiful locality of Bapu Nagar, Jaipur. Client for this project is Mr. Dillep Baid Founder of Dileep industries.

He wanted to this setup for social welfare and public service and his love for yoga and meditation. Shala is fueled by the professional members of K.V.Fitness studio led by Mr. Kapil & Mr. Vikram.
The concept for this project is to make a facility close to nature by using locally available construction material cutting the carbon footprints with earthy materials. Use of locally available stone for foundations and walls gives a natural bonding and defines the statement of simplicity. Exposed brick walling showcase the material honesty. Big glass doors and windows let the natural light to penetrate the premises and blend the interior with the landscape outside. Landscapes lawn and planters add greenery to the campus and make it more contemporary. Services were kept open for ease of maintenance and design in such a way it can fuse with the interiors and exteriors.
The built form of the building envelope is intensely kept in slops to harvest rainwater and to provide it the sense of movement as Shala is a school of movements. Furniture, lights, and artifacts were customized and designed to fit in the space and enhance their relevance to space.
