Mr.Venugopal Villa - Trichy
A north facing villa, design based on vasthu, was made for clients who were interested in traditional interior, high roof, lavish garden and a grand lounge. A chettinad kind of look (for a solid feel) asked by the client was reinforced by us with contemporary architecture. It can be seen in the elevation vividly from NH-45 bridge en route Trichy – Chennai bypass.
