    It's built with absolute love and inspiration from the architect Geoffrey Bawa, we designed a tropical modernized colonial style bungalow keeping in mind the geographical landscape of Malnad. With high ceilings, gigantic pillars, athangudi tiles, and most furniture being restored or made by local vendors, we tried our best to be as sustainable as possible.
