4000 Sq Ft of comfortable living space in the upcoming Kolathur. This is a good prototype for our construction which has led to other similar projects. Key outstanding features include maximizing the space with no deviations from approval, elevator, superior finishes, terrace garden creeps flowing into a pergola, with AC and inverter provision. The construction of the apartment was done with no compromise to steel, cement, concrete, with Aerocon bricks being used.
A house designed for a young family in a compact site of 1200 Sq.ft. which includes trees and a well. With parents being neighbours, we have integrated the existing and the proposed house by having a common lawn. The house is built around a 30 year old mango tree and an existing well thereby combining natural elements in the design. With interesting elements such as a Jhoola Corner, Roof Cut Dining area and Cantilevered steps, this house is a treat to live in. Coupled with a high ceiling, french windows and sloped roofing this house stands as a good example of Architecture.
It is not easy for someone to decide whether the Structure of an Old Building will continue to stand or not; we had this case in this project. After several inspections, studies and testing, we found the culprit to be capillary rise of the groundwater; so we concluded that the Structure could be restored with minimal treatment. We arrested all water leakages, replastered the weak portions of the building, replaced a heavy water tank with a light one, added a sump, and repainted it with minimal usage of funds. The life of the house got easily extended by about 10 years.
Water is really a big culprit in a construction. It can find its way into nooks & corners beyond one’s imagination. This is what happened to this 40 year old house. When it was designed & built it was extremely well done. However, over the years, water seemed to creeped into many areas around the plumb line and into some portions of the roof too. We studied the building for the weak portions, redesigned the water tank and the plumb line, re-did some portions of the roof and gave a fresh lease of life to the house.
Contemporary Design based around a traditional house of White (French) Town, this house is designed as spacious, airy and well suited for a old couple. Interesting aspects of the house were garden courtyard inside the house, french windows, sloped roof, pergolas to expand the living portion of the house which accommodated space for dining too.
West walls in our part of the world pose the biggest discomfort. Post lunchtime they invite a high amount of radiation and trap heat into the surrounding rooms. And this plot had the highest exposure for it despite being very close to the beach. We therefore designed the house, even though it was small, to include a small courtyard with a tree
An independent villa built in one of the developing suburbs, where the form of the building appears like a Lantern from a distance! Built in 3600 Sq ft of land, this house is built incorporating traditional and contemporary style and principles! With a rare to find central courtyard and a double height living space, this bungalow has ample light and ventilation for every space. Folded staircase, pleasant colours for the interiors and contrasting exteriors highlight this building and makes it stand apart from its surrounding!
This old building constructed in medieval style got a facelift by adding a new porch and re-orienting the staircase and playing with colors; this building became vibrant and dynamic in its outlook.
This Independent house with two dwellings was designed with focus on energy efficiency and usage of green and sustainable materials like mud blocks, filler slab and grey water recycle. The design was done to optimize radiation and increase natural cross ventilation and maximize space utilization.
A 2400 Sq Ft Church was built in response to the environment through open corridors along the sides, clerestory windows giving away diffused light. For visual effects, the entire Church was finished in white giving it a grandeur scale. All the materials were locally sourced, which gave the building a traditional setting.
