There is freedom waiting for you, on the breezes of the sky, and you ask ‘what if I fall?’ Oh but my darling, what if you fly?”. One thing is absolutely certain, and I’m sure all bibliophiles and logophiles will agree with me when I quote Erin Hanson’s poem the moment they step inside Farm 21, a farmhouse turned vacation home in Rajokri, Delhi by Sanjyt Syngh.

In a quest to adhere to his signature style and find something quirky, Sanjyt Syngh—Delhi based interior designer, crafted a vast floor plan, elaborate individual bedrooms with adjoining balconies and a plethora of materials in order to negate even the slightest possibility of repetition.

Giving the house a cohesive identity is its exterior palette as several bold contemporary linear forms are fastened to the structure to give a sense of volume. With an additional 1,200 sq feet of built-up space nestled in the western corner of the farm for the servant quarters, it also includes generous balconies capturing lush green views.

The ground floor is primarily for formal entertaining with a waiting lounge at the main entrance of the house that overlooks the waterbody. This area leads to a large open space consisting of formal entertaining, formal dining and a show kitchen.
