Located in East Coast Road, Chennai, Neelankarai House is a contemporary home that incorporates sustainable design principles. A verandah lined with solid granite pillars that run along the periphery of the building catalyze the cooling effect within the space. The conscious approach to minimize heat gain and enable natural ventilation steered the orientation of the building to face West, thus shielding the rear garden from harmful rays of the sun. The use of sustainable building materials like timber, stone, and earth pairs elegantly with the yellow-hued facade. Athangudi tile flooring was not only a frugal choice but also enhanced the aesthetic appeal of the contemporary house.
