This week, we present to you the works of Auroville based award winning architects - Sheril Castelino & Pino Marchese. Pino, also an avid photographer worked for eight years in various studios of architecture in south Italy and Florence doing projects for housing, commercial and public buildings before moving to Auroville. Sheril has won the State Commendation Award in the year 2008.

Castellino & Marchese Architects are known for sustainable architecture, innovative urban planning and landscape designing. The featured project follows a Pondicherry colonial style as it is situated in the heritage part of town in a building of that style.

The antique chest adds character to the bedroom

I love the antique chandeliers in the living

Authentic antique furniture belonging to the region were sourced and used along with similar styled accessories and furnishings, to give it an Indo-French look. There are some amazing antique shops in Pondicherry, don't forget to check them out if you happen to be there.
