RAAS

RAAS

– Hand crafting a story for today

Set in the heart of the walled city of Jodhpur, Rajasthan, RAAS is a 1.5-acre property  located at the base of the Mehrangarh Fort.

The property was inherited with three, beautiful period structures (17th-18th century) which have been restored with traditional craftsmen in the original materials such as lime mortar and Jodhpur sandstone.

The large central courtyard houses the three restored heritage buildings and the 3 heritage suites. These become nodes, shared spaces such as dining areas, a spa, break away spaces, to be enjoyed by all the guests.

36 rooms have been created, spread over 3 contemporary buildings, inserted into the site in a manner that they frame the visual and spatial relationship among the old buildings and the Fort, creating a dialogue between the old and the new.

Inspired by the age old double skinned structures of the region, these buildings act as lanterns framing the site. The drama of the stone jaali (lattice) is heightened by the fact that these panels can be folded  by each user to reveal uninterrupted views of the fort, or can be closed for privacy and to keep the harsh Jodhpur sun out.

Crafted by over a hundred regional artisans and master-craftsmen, with materials that have been sourced locally, every element is handcrafted with a focus on simplicity, and function. Materials include hand cut stone, poured in situ pigmented cement terrazzo on floors, walls and as furniture. Locally crafted furniture and cabinets in sheesham (a local Indian hardwood).
