Sky Rocca


GRT Nature Trails Sky Rocca, Yercaud,  was a special project which made us explore further the limits of how one could create a contemporary architectural statement which respects the best  use of the local material  - stone.


Sensuous natural contours
Built along the precarious hill slope overlooking Salem City following the natural curves and contours of the land and preserving every single rock formation, the structural system of Sky Rocca itself is unique. The radiating load bearing stone masonry walls hold the floor slabs slightly above the ground at different levels, creating a series of sprawling terrace gardens in alternating heights keeping with the natural contours and topography of the land.
