The Running Wall Residence by LIJO RENY architects

Indian architectural firm LIJO RENY architects has designed the Running Wall Residence. Completed in 2012, this contemporary home features a winding laterite stone wall which begins at the entrance of the property and continues into the house itself. It is located in Thalassery, India. The form is a combination of plastered walls and exposed laterite wall. Laterite stone, once commonly used in Kerala architecture, has a direct visual appeal and a connection to the immediate surroundings, because of its earthy colour and tecture. The usage of this familiar stone in a new language, without losing its inane nature, would immediately root the design, at the same time, acknowledge the presence of a change, bridging this huge gap that has come about in the contemporary architectural practice that prevails in the state now.
