Terracotta Walls, No paint, No conventional coverups, only muted earth tones.

This home designed by Chitra Vishwanath is an example of a 'building creating a positive impact on the land.'

Pic.No.1 The entrance to the house that blends with its lush green surroundings.

Pic No. 2 A circle of space in the terracotta wall of the back verandah. It frames the greenary beyond. ( how lovely!)

Pic No. 4 Lot of open space and rough finishes with smooth ochre floor.

Very interesting. Earthy. Eco-friendly.
