Yatachchen House, Kathmandu, Nepal 

Located in Lalitpur, the Yatachchen House is a traditional house reflecting the architectural splendor that flourished in the Malla period. The owners decided to convert the older structure into an elegant homestay. The main aim of the project is to prove that older buildings can be suitably adapted for modern use as a quality tourist accommodation and for their own residential purpose. It has successfully demonstrated that historic residential buildings can be renovated to suit modern taste without sacrificing the age-old architectural traditions of the valley.
