Ruchi is the architect working with the Saraf Group and provides architectural support and coordination for Sagarmatha Next.
She states that “working at the altitude of 4,000 metres presents a completely different outlook of nature and architecture from the established norms. Incorporating local style, art, material and technique, the experience is overwhelming.”
She is an alumnus of PIADS Nagpur and has more than seven years of experience, mostly with the Saraf Group. Ruchi has been a part of retrofitting & renovation of the Hotel Yak & Yeti, one the oldest and culturally rich 5-Star hotels in Kathmandu, and the renovation of Hyatt Regency Kathmandu, a seamless mix of traditional and contemporary style of architecture.
