South Court, Pune...

The highlight of my recent visit to Pune was 'South Court' - the hotel where I stayed along with fellow architect Ravi John. It was by chance that we strolled into this colonial villa . Its located at Koregaon Park , the same street where Osho's commune is located. The hotel, which looks like a "booth bunglow" at first sight, is owned by a rich old Parsee gentleman and is now under renovation. If properly redone, it has the potential of becoming an Architectural landmark in Pune.

The front facade...Architectural remains of a colonial past...

The bird bath sculpture...

wooden stairs leading to the rooms...

long covered verandah..typical colonial arch style

Ornamental mirror yet to be fixed back...

high ceiling rooms
