SHAHJANABAD, symbolic heart of Metropolitan Delhi:

A city, with the colossal Red Fort and it’s 14 gates. The emperor Shahjahan built Shahjahanabad, the old city of Delhi in 1648 AD with the concepts of medieval city layout. This old city was an enclosed fortified city with rubble wall, bastions and gates at regular intervals. Fortified neighborhood with arterial lanes, built fabrics on both sides and neighborhoods and mohallas are the main features of Delhi. The buildings in the old city are distinct in spatial planning, architecture, decorative elements and climate responsive features.


The lane had all the suspended electrical, data and phone cables overhanging from the poles down to the street. The dilapidated elements, the fragile structure and open service connections were major constraints on the site. Multiple cracks on the columns as well as the walls and large patches of dampness made the heritage look like an ordinary run down building. Decorative plaster work was hidden under the multiple coats of lime wash.
