Exhibit House, Residential-Single family dwelling

Project Status: Completed

This project explores the idea of exhibiting the Dravidian elements in a very modern way. The design evolved around these simple ideas. The design was meant to be read in a minimal way and was also layered with traditional details and highlights. It also had to act as a base to highlight the art pieces. The value every single craft or detail added to the space was that they were like exhibits themselves. Care was taken that the craft retains the essence of its basics and beauty while being projected in a contemporary style. The stone carved temples, silk weaves and the elaborate Kolam patterns that adorn almost every Dravidian house entrance were the basic motifs in the design. Arriving at a simple language that was rich and vibrant yet pleasant and calm to be in was the final design intent. The lighting and use of natural and rustic colours, patterns and material textures helped in achieving the latter.
