Venkatesan House at Chennai by Benny Kuriakose

This residence is built out of natural granite, brick lined arches as lintels and a simple sloping tiled roof. The rubble masonry gives the house a rigid feel, which is contrasted by the way the house blends with the surrounding nature, with trees and plants , that are the local species of the area, thus creating a perfect rugged balance. There is an internal courtyard, which connects to the outside through jaali windows, made out of terracotta. The house blends in a very subtle way with the adjoining landscape.
