A 40-year old building located in the heart of Adyar, Dhananjayan House was refurbished to open up the interiors to nature. The team planned the redesign with the intent to preserve the essence of the ancestral home while simultaneously bringing in a fresh perspective. The renovation included a sloping tiled roof verandah that breaks the monotony of the formerly dull facade. The high ceiling of the sloping roof made way for a mezzanine level that effectively utilizes the space. The vibrant coloured Athangudi tile flooring blends with the unconventional aesthetics of the interiors and also keeps the indoor climate optimal during hot summer months.
