House in Uthandi Village / E.C.R. Chennai – In Progress

A house in the fast-developing South Chennai, wedged between the important East Coast Road connecting Chennai to the tourist landmarks of South Tamil Nadu (Mamallapuram/Mahabalipuram is less than 20 km away, Pondicherry – the former French colony with its charming old town and the International City of Auroville are less than 120 km to drive) and the shores of the Indian Ocean, offers an elegant abode for a family. Well-connected to the heart of the city yet just out enough to escape the at times strenuous grip of urban life, the house features four bedrooms (all with attached dressing and bathroom areas), large spaces for living and dining and the required service areas set in an 12 000 Square Feet plot within a gated community of similarly programmed buildings.

The overall outlook of the house – which will be most likely available for rent – is dominated by a straight-lined and modern approach with clean defined, well-ventilated and well-illuminated areas. Simple and elegantly minimalist in its design but with a sensual use of materials and surfaces reflecting the climatic and cultural context the house is able to welcome an international clientele.
