The architectural interior and exterior turn the entire house into a language that is deeply relevant to play or a melodrama that synchronizes a traditional gesture and a contemporary feeling.
Feel Like A Native
The local Coorg homes go parallel in terms of traditional and contemporary designs of interior and exterior structures with an open gardening area for some plantsperson or an anthophile probably. It might make someone feel like a native there if you choose for a stay at Coorg.
Other than artificial steps, ramps, and retaining walls, the exterior is left untouched on a large scale which certainly provides the whole architect a wilderness envelope. There is even a local belief that the garden returns to the wood’s wildness after the sun sets and that’s why the natives don’t lighten up their gardens after the end of the day. Isn’t it interesting…? Well, I really do an eye to eye on this. Don’t you..?
