Thotti ManeOctober 16, 2018
Thotti Mane- House with a central court and circulation around it. Thotti manes have been in existence since times immemorial. Huge houses built around open to sky central court which was always filled with lot of activities – children playing around, women folks drying the grains or mangoes for making pickles, old people relaxing in the verandah. A space which connected all the age group people together.
The Thotti Mane still holds the central place in many people’s hearts. The design of the space, Mangalore tiles and Wooden column touches the soul directly and establishes a strong connect making it a happier space to use.
