The Club building, designed along a strong classical theme, is located amidst the diplomatic area, adjoining Lutyen’s Delhi.

This was an extremely demanding project. The bureaucratic system of DOPT mandated a sign-off from several committees for each approval. Various separate packages were formed and awarded to Civil, HVAC, Electrical, Interior, Horticulture, Gym/Spa etc. Separate monitoring committees were formed to supervise each field. Over the 3 years of this project, we participated in nearly 200 meetings and presentations at the CSOI and North Block. This diligent and dogged support to NBCC and CSOI/NPC throughout the project, garnered and earned great appreciation for TDA, our team and our services.

*Design concept AHC

The Built mass has been placed towards North side with spacious entry and exit boulevards, lined with Palm trees. The Front U-shaped block creates a spacious courtyard on the rear side, with good visibility all the way through to the entrance porch.

The linear single-floor built form acts as a buffer between the courtyard and the swimming pool, giving it a sense of privacy.
