Home is a partnership between the creator and provider. The creator being the architect and provider, the client. Nothing was more important to make a building like Kurien's residence than this divine and sturdy partnership.
Keeping all the above in mind, we were inspired to create a 'Vault' which was an umbrella to protect the shelter from the indomitable tropical sun. Thus the long catenary vault blocking the South-West sun made from more than 9000 CSEB bricks.
The technology of sinusoidal walls consists of constructing wave like walls with or without reinforcement. This was pioneered by architect Eladio Dieste in Iglesia de Atlantida, Uruguay.
The Wallmakers have tried to emulate the essence of Dieste by using Compressed Stabilized Earth Blocks without reinforcing the vault structure. This small technique allowed wind to enter creating beautiful triangular openings (windows) and yet avoiding trespassers viewing into the home.
Nearby traditional homes were being replaced by modern concrete homes resembling match boxes in a unfitting environment. This prompted the client to ask for something new with emphasis was laid on climatic response and eco-friendliness . His only request further was to save his antique furniture.
