Lakshman Sagar Resort. “Zero kilometre” design. Indian firm, Sahil Sartak Design Co designed the project for the Laksham Sagar resort, introducing the concept of “Zero Kilometre Design TM”, in other words sourcing from the community and empowering the local craftwork.



A “Zero Food Mile” approach now applied to design. We’re in India, in the region of Rajasthan, not far from Jodhpur.





The team from Indian firm, Sahil Sartak Design Co was commissioned for the interior design of the Laksham Sagar resort on the banks of the Laksham Sagar lake near the village of Raipur. Despite this being an agricultural community, the village is quite self-sufficient and the vast majority of people are skilled craftspeople.





Rather than taking the umpteenth restoration and conservation direction, so common to this region, the design team decided to approach their task from a different angle. So, thanks to “Zero Kilometre DesignTM”, they sourced local craftspeople to work on the resort. The result is a blend of culture, skill and local materials, and of course a building that ends up being intrinsically sustainable.





A result that has become the manifesto not only for a sustainable environment, but also for ethical and social sustainability, treasuring and enhancing the local craft trades and products.
