Architect Renovates a House to be an Oasis in the Middle of Chennai City

Spatial layering is a design concept where multiple spatial planes are layered to design how people perceive spaces and to emote different kinds of feelings associated with the user experience. The house is designed using multiple layers of materials, planes, and volume for users to pause and absorb the essence of earthy materials and enjoy the dense landscape.

#MyGreatFacade is a series presented by Fenesta Windows in association with #Buildofy

The Principal Architect Malli Saravanan from Mawi Designs walks us through the project insightfully breaking down the various spaces.

Forest-like landscape, use of laterite wall, spatial layering, and a pool area are some of the highlights of this project.
