Parts of the historic Darjeeling Gymkhana Club is in need for renovation – some immediately while others could take some time to renovate. Leaks from the roof as well as seeping moisture from the ground and retaining walls had been taking a toll on the structure.
We were requested by the Darjeeling Gymkhana Club to prepare a renovation proposal in the form of a master plan – one that could be phased out over time and also possible when funds were available.
The skating rink required immediate attention along with a lounge which was known as the Bamboo Room. We prepared a fairly simple proposal that tried to ensure that the anything original was simply restored and not tampered with – and anything to be added was done so – keeping in mind, the design aesthetic of the club.
