Architect and founder of Vayam, Tanushri Dalmiya is on a steadfast crusade…at the heart of all her designs is the focus to champion Indian arts and crafts, explore local materials and encourage vernacular talent. She is the bright face of Indian design looking inwards for inspiration. In the pursuit of her cause Tanushri doesn’t compromise on high-quality design and detail and this 4,300sqft home in Chennai is a testimony to that.
