This house was designed to illustrate several design ideas that Jacob George has long held, but never been able to implement. It is designed to be totally modular, with comfort and ease of maintenance (apart from the usual architectural niceties) being the main aim the design aspires to achieve. All walls are prefab bison board panels. Wiring and plumbing are therfore easily accesible and repairs and changes can be made without resorting to messy break-age. It also illustrates how one can design to respond to the climate without resorting to traditional architecture style of the region. Jacob George won the Inside Outside Architect of the Year - 2005 award for this project. Total Project Cost: Rs. 29 Lakhs
