Located in Delhi, Artisan House demonstrates the firm’s creativity by blending traditional Indian artisanal skills with modern standards of luxury. The design firm was responsible for the architecture and interiors of this project.

Spanning 29,800 sq-ft, the design exploits the terrain of the site to create two different levels. Where the lower level was designed as private space, the upper level was designated for gatherings. Led by Sonali Rastogi, founder partner of the Morphogenesis, the house is designed in keeping with Indian traditions — for example, the private living space was organised around a central courtyard housing a temple.

Handcrafts are prevalent in this project, including stone crafts, metal crafts and textiles. Artisan House, in accommodating a traditional Indian family, also includes facilities such as an outdoor swimming pool and a garden.
