The design intent is to build ground hugging buildings with sloping roofs and shaded verandas. 

The sports club on the bank of river Godavari in Nashik  is designed to be a recluse from the city life. The facility includes a  cricket field, tennis courts, badminton courts, gym, spa, golf putting area, restaurants, meeting rooms, banquet facility and guest rooms amongst other things. The site is located high above the road and offers dramatic views to the river.

The distinction between outdoor and indoor space is blurred as the open restaurant and sit-out offers an uninterrupted view to the river and beyond. The outdoor space is designed for active use by the members. Natural materials like saw cut wood, exposed steel sections and exposed brick are used to bring out the earthy feel to the place. The detailing is clean and contemporary which adds finesse to the design. The landscape is designed to be lush green with native shrubs and trees which set a natural backdrop for the buildings.
