This mid-20th century house is located in THF's Stagopilog model conservation street. It is being rehabilitated with 50% co-financing by the owner, the descendent of a family that migrated into Ladakh from Yarkand in China over 100 years ago. Because the house was built taller than the nearby Stupa gate, people believe a curse befell the family and the house was abandoned. It was rehabilitated minus the top floor.
Team:
