Situated in a sparsely populated residential area in plain sight of the ancient Chinars of Harwan, Nadis makes its presence felt once you enter the massive iron gates. It’s an estate cleverly made with a clear built area that occupies half of the estate and the other half is left for a fledgling garden. For the rushed eye Nadis appears as a neatly stacked three tiered building which is as orderly inside. A shaded porch leads you into a brief anteroom ideal during snow and rain. And a large room that functions as an informal lounge with floor heating by a maze of water pipes and reception area where you are greeted with a cup of heart-warming Kahwa, the famous flavourful Kashmiri tea.
Once you have a chance to look around the lounge you take in the large floor to ceiling window, a deviation from the original architecture of residences which stress on smaller windows for better insulation. An eclectic mix of old and new, colours meet your eyes even if you give the lounge a cursory glance. A fireplace defines the lounging corner while a long table with benches on either side looks perfect for work or for a bunch of friends to sit around bantering over many cups of tea.
