Thanikachalam House

2003

A design that draws inspiration from Laurie Baker’s philosophies, Thanikachalam House evokes simplicity and warmth that tones down the greatness of its size. The union of exposed brickwork and large verandahs in a building fringed with luscious landscaping evokes a tranquil atmosphere within the space. A sloping tiled roof that shelters the structure and arched lintels that crown the recycled windows and doors, portray the elegance and grandeur of locally available materials. Louvered brick jalis configure a dramatic play of light and shadows that embrace the interiors of the home.
