Milton Street in Cooke Town is located in the erstwhile Bangalore Cantonment and is also a part of Bangalore’s own history, being one of its oldest neighborhoods. The wide road, the dense foliage rising above the walls, and the gentle rays of the sun penetrating the canopy all make for a mesmerizing experience. One gloriously reminiscent of Bangalore of yore.
The homes along this stretch are reflective of colonial architecture and bring back memories of a different era, with large courtyards dotted with trees of many kinds.
The site in particular has a dense green cover with crisscrossing branches. This inspired the architect to develop a nature-responsive design where the homes blended in with the trees while making room for the foliage.
