The traditional architecture of Kerala is a famous style from South India, which is based mainly on the science of carpentry principles known as Thachu Shastra, and the science of architecture and construction known as Vastu Shastra. The central, spacious courtyard is essential in a traditional home in Kerala, so the design of the courtyard with a pond creates the heart of this 2,400-square-foot residence in Palakkad. Designed by i2a Architects for Mr. Radjiev and the family, this house was created with the fundamental concept of “Idanaji”, which in regional language means corridor. The light-filled corridor creates an easy flow through any open area of the home, keeping close and connected family members.
