Architectural spaces can potentially nourish emotionally and spiritually.
It is for us to interpret spatial narratives built within the architectural space resolutions in traditional architecture.
The clues for movement, inherent to the space are revealed sequentially. This gradual unfolding of spaces creates a sense of curiosity within the onlooker and involves them in the process which is both interactive as well as a discovery, very personal and intuitive. This journey is enriched by the spatial variations emerging through sense of enclosure and intensity of light.
There are innumerable nuances of built form by which traditional Indian Architecture manifests moods, communicates messages and remains relevant after these many centuries.
This timelessness is attributed to its freshness offered by the variations of visual frames as well as the integration of light where the sun is the constant variable as it changes position and intensity from morning to evening and from summer to winter. This makes the static object change with changing outdoor conditions through sun.
In this manner, the elements of a building, its scale, size, volume, degrees of enclosure, levels of illumination as well as materials and building envelope instill in the observer ethos appropriate to the place – a timeless ethos, never changing but constantly adapting.
