While designing the property we wanted to create a connect between the life style inside the resort with the unique local experiences of the life outside its walls.
Thus, making Raipur the epicentre, a thorough research was conducted in neighbouring cities and towns. This network stretched from Jodhpur to Jaitaran, Pali to Pushkar, Biawer to Ajmer.
The success of this project largely depended on the synchronization of various actors, who would otherwise be working in isolation depending on their individual interests.
Regarding the choice of materials, an effort was made to use materials as local as possible and as sustainable as possible. Local materials already are best suited to the conditions of the region. Similarly the true essence of any craft is the story behind it, which has been used as inspirations by the designers, to design products that would narrate the similar stories but for a contemporary audience.
Hence the entire series of furniture, products and experiences were developed for Lakshman Sagar resort imbibes the true sense of design, tradition, ecology, ethics and a contemporary culture.
Sahil & Sarthak Designs has been awarded the Young Creative Entrepreneur Award (Finalist) 2010, for applying the Zero Kilometre Design Philosophy for the Lakshman Sagar Project.
