Sundaram Hiranmayam

This mesmerizing chalet is located strategically on an islet surrounded by the scenic waters of the Vembanad Lake at Kainakkery. The true essence of Kerala and the context of the region is well exhibited in this house that strongly follows the traditional Kerala architecture style, using local vernacular materials, techniques of construction and craftsmanship. The design hinges, in principle, on traditional climatic sensibilities and are layered with cultural and climatic nuances of the region – which is achieved by integrating the landscape and the built, while simultaneously blurring the distinction between the interior and exterior.
