Palokaran House, Thrissur

A traditional Kerala Syrian Christian mansion is recreated authentically in this heritage tharavadu design for the eminent Palokaran family. The design features rich detailing of Kerala-Colonial architecture in its planning and elements. Set in lush green tropics, thermal comfort and cross ventilation becomes integral part of the design. Colonnade verandas run through the periphery of the lower floor as a seam between the interior and exterior, while large arched openings ensure visual continuum.
