Once Upon A Hut

2002

Located in the serene town of Injambakkam, Once upon a hut is a reminiscence of an old traditional farmhouse that was renovated into a humble dwelling. Originally, the building consisted of a thatched roof with an arched entrance. Its redesign involved the addition of a verandah, a private courtyard and an open to the sky bath. The lush green landscaping makes way to the verandah with Kadapa flooring speckled with white marble. A timber staircase connects the ground floor to the added mezzanine floor that harbours a spacious bedroom with an attached bath. Recycled windows and doors that blur the lines between the tranquil view and the traditional interiors, also take care of natural ventilation.
