This house for Mr. G.K.Ramamurthy was built in 2003. The client's brief was for a modern house spun off from a traditional plan. In the traditional house an off centre courtyard has living spaces around it which are hierarchical as defined by caste symbols

In the GKR house the courtyard is in the centre and spaces open on to it and hence non-hierarchical. The house has a flat roof built of hollow clay filler slab which keeps the interior cool. A sit out is provided in the front as is usual in traditional houses.
