Back in India in the mid sixties, at a time when modern architecture, indigenously produced, was at feotal stage, nari did not practice much architecture. It was a few years later that his first city home was built, until then he worked on few interior projects. In the next two decades Nari built many houses, each one a milestone of not only the development of a unique style but also his personal evolution. It was his honesty that was exemplified in the use of materials & composition of space; his works were proverbially utopian in that they symbolized a union of material & structure, stemmed from sensitivity to space & form, an interlacing of these two aspects reveals itself in a few basic components used in his houses.
