Tharian house is designed as a retirement house in a small village in Ernakulam District. The design was intended to deviate from the usual Kerala houses which overlooks the road. The verandah of this house overlooks the green fields to give a quiet feel. Lot of recycled timber was used in the construction of this house. The local carpentry skills were used for making the roofs and the interiors. The stone columns were made by a stone craftsman from Kanyakumari District.
