Architecture

Placed along either sides of the winding streets, are the closely spaced houses, shading and providing relief to the passer by on hot summer afternoon. With houses extending on to the streets, an orchestrated cinematic experience from the streets into the houses in between realms that are of symbolic, function and transitional values. Sequenced with changing levels, textures, illuminations and volumes. House made in stone and lime, with compound walls of the marble, floors of mud and stone roofs. Grounded structures with courtyards are a must. Building in the region are a result of the proximity to a quarry or a lake, where houses were a reflection of the economic and social standing of individuals. The levels of articulation and detailing varied from location to professions. Although the basic spatial organisation continued to be scaled and modified as per needs.
