From the colours used for the interiors, to the careful selection of building material, we wanted to contain the rich tradition of this land. Our inspiration was the rural village architecture of western Rajasthan. Every nook and corner has been lovingly created by a talented team. Every single workman involved in bringing Mihir Garh to life, hails from the region and this award is a celebration of their efforts”, said Singh.
