Located in the midst of the Sahayadri mountains, The Shift House in Aamby Valley, Lonavala is an absolute paradise. It boasts of a two storied home with a sprawling lawn, an infinity pool and jacuzzi that offers panoramic views of the UNESCO-recognised Western Ghats.
The house has been designed by architects Anand Menon, Shobhan Kothari and Kiran Kapadia of KdnD Studio LLP.

Keeping the spectacular location in mind, the house has been specifically designed to blend into the terrain.
The structure of the house is designed like two blocks, like in the board game Jenga, which sit over each other. The lower volume rises from the earth like a concrete box, which opens up to face the valley. This comprises the dining and living areas along with the master suite.

The shift in the upper floor has a staircase, which leads to four identical bedroom suites. The shift also creates an overhang to protect the house from the weather.

The living room decorated in muted tones allows the bright green and blue contrast of the lawn, mountains and sky to dominate the space, offering a picture of serenity and calmness.

Minimalistic furniture and lights add to the overall appeal.
Marble flooring and woodwork dominate the rooms. The emerald toned chairs add a touch of richness to the decor.
