Corbel House / Kamat & Rozario Architecture

The design developed from the client?s brief, which was to have a modern house inspired by the family?s roots in Kerala, India. We looked towards traditional palace construction of Kerala for inspiration. We noticed a few key features that most of these structures portrayed, such as - the verandah that wrapped the living spaces all around, the appearance of a heavy masonry base on the ground floor, with thick arches and carved columns and a first floor which appeared to be lighter in terms of materials and overall treatment. This became the inspiration for the front façade of the building. Carved columns, which are a prominent element of traditional Kerala architecture, were adopted but with a contemporary twist.
