Built in the late 19th century in Ooty, Fingerpost House is a bungalow that portrays Scottish influences in its design features. The objective was to conserve the building with minimal intervention to safeguard its architectural character. The team partnered with an interior designer and a landscape architect from England with a shared motive to understand the design that also exhibited characteristics of typical British bungalows in India. A separate kitchen that adjoins the building at the rear end, was a borrowed design feature of British architecture. The design approach ensured the restoration of the historical character of the structure.
