Morphogenesis approach to this resort design was to develop a master plan that changed very little in the land formation, to “touch the earth lightly”, quoting Glenn Murcutt. For the built structures, the design borrows from local architectural references that have stood the test of environmental suatainability, creating a strong sense of place. Traditional references of the nalukettu form (traditional, matrilineal Kerala homestead) and the kettuvallam (houseboat) have informed the planning of the villas. The project aspires to visually engage with the end user’s imagination by creating a unique identity amidst a serene landscape.
