Tarangambadi - Tranquebar
The basic ideology of the project was to provide houses for the victims of the tsunami in 2004, which hit the east coast of India. Generally, in public housing programs in India and elsewhere, a single type design is used for the construction of all the houses. The house owners appear dissatisfied with the mass produced shelter which barely meet their housing requirements. They modify these houses immediately after occupancy to suit their requirements. Here in Tarangambadi, the houses were customised to a great extent.
