PROJECT: Residence for Dr.Krishnamohan Prabhu, Moodabidri

Location: Moodabidri, Coastal Karnataka, India

A renovation project for Dr.Krishnamohan Prabhu’s residence in the historically renown coastal town of Moodbidri. The client wanted to maintain the traditional looks of Mangalore tiled house with its cool interiors using wooden false ceiling. The project involved removal of a few inner walls to make spacious rooms, the roof was re-worked by reusing the existing rafters, joists and planks. Entrance courtyard was added with a passage linking to the hospital nearby and two more private courtyards were introduced for the bedrooms. External walls were built with exposed laterite masonry, interior walls were plastered for better reflective light.

White foam sheets were sandwiched as false ceiling material between the rafters and the battens, glued with water proof adhesive. Foam sheets provide excellent thermal insulation and water proofing in the event of damage to Mangalore tiles.

Steel I-beams were used to retain the old grid of the rafters but to span a larger space. A timber log was erected at the centre of the living and dining room to support an I-beam in the living room with planks cantilevered out of the log forming a display shelf adding to the rustic feature of the residence. A steep roofed guest room was introduced in the first floor with a dormer window for better light and ventilation in the attic overlooking the living room.
