The residence POOMPUHAR designed for Mr Unni Kottakal in memory of his mother. Cost-effective recycled materials have been used to create spaces that evoke memories and introspection. The materials used, which are mostly recycled bricks, doors and windows, tiles both try to bring down the cost and make the house energy efficient and eco- friendly too. Natural ventilation made effective through the openings in the courtyard helps for passive cooling keeping the climate under control. The palette of materials including Terracotta, oxide, exposed concrete, artworks all help to bring one close to the earth and nature. The breeze concept and nature which gets included within the house attempts to create a meditative ambience in memory of the mother at POOMPUHAR.
