With Love. Madras is an anthology of twenty homes across the city that give us a peek into the Madras way of life. Architects Ashna Lulla and Vigncsh Sivakumar explore the city. traversing its neighbourhoods, architectural typologies, family dynamics. and each homeowner's aesthetic. Get acquainted with 87-year-old matriarch Lily Vijayaraghavan, who has dedicated her life to collecting brass antiques or get transported to the lush backyard of the Jacobs. who spend their evenings watching a panoply of fireflies. Discover homes whose stories are told through heirlooms. vivid and textures that call to the senses, local materials, tree-lined avenues, and tropical blooms. Together these homes could easily form a mood board of Madras itself: unassuming, authentic, and steeped in cultural legacy. The city may have long since become Chennai. but Madras remains a way of life.
