The large verandah as a key space

The large verandah as a key space

The large verandah was one of the requirements from the original owner, as he required shaded open space for political gatherings. Hence, the architect designed this semi-open verandah with a long span of roof to fulfill that requirement. Initially, the verandah had a front lawn and garden view, which has been lost after property division. This verandah has been the playspace for children, sitting space for elders and occasionally, a venue for hosting weddings or birthday parties.
