I asked abt Murali Architects as he designed my parents home in Madras (and my uncle's and another family friend's and a cousin's....). So I know him quite well and now I've found a connection between us

great to know that Mr.Murali did your madras home, when was the house built? when i was working with him in 2004, we used to do a lot of muslim family homes...the thing i liked with his work is that he takes enormous effort to do each and every detail of the home...i used to love the brainstorming sessions we do at office...and we used to sit hours on end in front of our site and discuss the color scheme for painting..

The house was built (actually renovated) in 1993-94, long before you worked for him I guess. He did a great job and people who see it for the first time are usually impressed! Is he still doing domes in his houses? They are a feature of all his houses that I know of.

he does lots of curved walls and surfaces but i guess he doent like domes is true that anyone seeing his buildings will be very when i go about in chennai i can easily spot any of his works from the street end....he's got some revolutionary ideas about the modern homes...
