This Sea Facing Chennai Home Was Built in Only Four Months

The Gully Home is located at the end of a quiet, residential street in Chennai, overlooking the ocean. The house offers an uninterrupted view of the ocean while giving the residents the essential privacy and security.

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

The project derives its name from the great room which is a multi-functional space like a simple vibrant street (gully) in a city. The triple height space has an open living-dining-kitchen layout that opens itself into a linear garden with a view of the sea beyond.

The floor plates are staggered by 5 feet on either side of the triple-height great room, connected by an open metal dog legged staircase with each landing leading the user into a designated space.

  1. What kind of wires are those which replace conventional grills? Wouldn't they easily be snapped with pliers?

    If they're not as simple to snap as they look, I'm very curious what material it is.

  2. They ruined seaview of the house behind and expect the karma hit back soon!
