Location: Tuticorin, Tamil Nadu, India
We carried out an aesthetic retrofit for this house, to create a better experience
The client, a young businessman disillusioned with his commissioned architect's plans for his new house in Tuticorin, Tamil Nadu, desired a facelift for the project. What we proposed was an integrated aesthetic-plan for the house that would involve minimal change.
However on site, the first floor was already entirely built and form-work for the second floor slab was underway based on previous plans. Apart from the finer remodeling of specific portions of the original construction, a substantial part of the proposal was an integrative landscape plan for the entire house.
We worked closely with the commissioned architect and the project was completely executed by the commissioned architects based on our new design proposal. We called it an aesthetic retrofit for a house under construction.
