+91 94 47 14 59 88


Lalan Kakkanatt is a self made architect designer with many noteworthy living and leisure spaces to his credit. Born into a family of artists, his early passion was wild life photography. His flair for design manifested itself when he was compelled to take up the design and execution of his own home. That was in 1990. And since then he has created close to 200 living spaces – in various parts of Kerala. A few major resorts, homes, memorial spaces, old age shelters etc are part of his repertoire.
It was his active interaction with the ethnic tribes in Kerala that seeded his creative philosophy. He mostly builds with locally sourced materials and always includes the topography of the place as an integral part of design. The designs are inspired from Dutch as well as traditional Kerala architecture. His structures integrate the virtues of natural living and serve as examples of enhanced architectural aesthetics.
He also takes up brick by brick transplantation and restoration of antiquated heritage buildings, the traditional tharavads of Kerala.
His is a classic example of holistic building, as he is involved in the design of the house in totality – its interior as well as exterior. He also ensures the right living environment for his structures with apt landscaping.
He is also engaged as Consultant to many projects including the prestigious Musiris Heritage Project, and is part of the Advisory Council of Kerala Council for Historical Research (KCHR).
