Prema Mylapore is a compact two-storied agraharam house that was conserved and extended without disturbing the existing features of the building. Optimum use of spaces has been planned to fulfil the needs of the residents. A courtyard beyond the dining room on the ground floor brings sufficient ventilation and creates a calming atmosphere. The otherwise plain interiors are contrasted by the brightly coloured athangudi tile flooring. The simple facade and minimally carved timber pillars complement this contemporary house’s humbleness and elegance.
