The Liminal Landscape architectural project, nestled near the sacred Gosaikunda Lake in the heart of the Himalayas, embodies a harmonious blend of architectural design and reverence for its pristine surroundings. This endeavor’s primary aim is to seamlessly engage with the rugged mountainous landscape while respecting the fragile environment.

The architectural matter is conceived as a haven for mountain climbers and trekkers, a well-deserved reward for their strenuous journey. The design creates an ambiance that celebrates the “in-between” spaces, where the natural world meets human innovation. It features multiple levels connected by subtle steps, fostering a deep connection between visitors and their awe-inspiring surroundings.

The Thermal Baths invite guests to soak in the rejuvenating hot springs while being embraced by panoramic mountain views. This retreat not only provides solace and relaxation but also an opportunity to reflect on the majesty of nature. It stands as a testament to the delicate balance between modernity and tradition, offering a sanctuary that is at once indulgent and humbling.
