Making an aesthetic statement

Provision is made for natural light to wash the interiors and give ventilation, writes Nrithya Ranganathan

Innovative: A view of Balakrishnan’s terrace and entrance gardens.

K.V. Balakrishnan’s residence in Poonamallee opens out and draws the outside in. Designed by Murali Architects, this interesting house allows for natural light to wash the interiors and provides for good ventilation.

The house leads you to a double height living room which ensures a natural draft through a venturi effect. Apart from this functional relation with the natural elements, it also consciously makes an aesthetic expression of its relation.

The exterior stone cladding as much as it helps to keep the inside cool also gives it a robust visual quality.

Pergolas, Terrace gardening and landscaping at various levels, extends this approach further and makes the house look as it is inside a garden.

The landscaping of terrace and gardens includes a wide variety of plant materials such as plumeria-white, pink ulba yellow, red and lantana varieties of creepers and has been designed with the care for minimum maintenance.
