Atali Ganga Resort, Rishikesh
A ground breaking resort, Atali, 30 kilometers from Rishikesh on the banks of the river Ganga. Distinguished by its use of stone, reed and steel wire, the project abandons a commonplace aesthetic and other such iconographic elements to distinguish itself in favour of a building that draws its aesthetic from the means, methods and modes of its construction. The resort consists of a stone building that houses a storage facility on the lower level and a dormitory on the upper level, a veranda with a tensile roof that frames the surrounding mountains, a cafe and cottages for guests.
Honeymoon Inn, Manali
Destination hotels at Manali, Shimla and Mussouri, that vary in size from 40 rooms to 100 rooms.

The property itself is about 20 years old, RLDA Studio was brought in to give the place a complete makeover in the common areas as well as the bedrooms.
