1.​ French Heritage Design

Pondicherry is often termed as a window to France. Its rich colonial heritage is a rare instance of French architecture in the sub-continent.  
Inspired by the colonial aesthetic, Auroma French Villaments is re-creating its grandeur with modern technology.
Some highlights of French architecture which have been integrated into the Auroma French Villaments design are:


  • Stylized Columns

  • Burma Teak Wood Balconies

  • Burma Teak Wood Filigree

  • French Styled Roofs

  • French Cornices

  • Window & Door Relief

  • Large French Windows & Doors


2. Rhythm of the House

The internal planning of each home is a Rhythm from the Inner to the Outer. Private spaces such as bedrooms and washrooms are towards the rear end of the house. Semi - private spaces like Kitchen and Dining form the centre. Public spaces like Living room are towards the front. And the crowning glory - Balconies form the outermost edge, the much coveted connection with the greenery. 

3. The Balcony

In the words of one of our mentors Architect Masud Taj : 

" The balcony is a dialogue between ground and sky. When you lean out of the balcony, you wish to go beyond. When you lean out, the balcony is dreaming you. Because where balconies end, a soaring begins that no parapets can curtail.... These balconies are like words left hanging in the air. "
