The ‘Halaguru Thotti Mane’ is a compact recreational home built on the site of the client’s ancestral home. The home was owned by the client’s grandfather- an educationist and a revered scholar, where its Jagli Katte (verandah space) served as a gathering space for the entire village, a place where people from all walks of life gathered, learned, played and held meaningful conversations. Inspired by the traditional Thotti Mane, the client wanted to build a new home for the family, a house to invoke memories of their family home and be a space for the extended family to gather and convene often
