Architects: Stapati Achitects

Stapati Architects are noted for use of traditional elements in modern context very successfully.

Just a  glimpse of their work :-

This traditional house by the lake entice me so much that I am ready to leave my metro city any time!

Most prominent feature in Kerala’s architecture is its gabled roofs and all wood constructions.

The skillful choice of timber, accurate joinery, artful assembly and delicate carving of wood work for columns, walls and roofs frames are the unique characteristics of traditional Kerala architecture.

The gorgeous wooden staircase which has decorated pages of practically all the interiors magazines in India!

I already  started feeling cool breeze all over my spirit!
