6. Concrete jalisHow about using a concrete jali (lattice screen) instead of the conventional window grille materials?ProsConcrete is a robust material and can be used as a jali over the window. These jalis are available in a prefabricated form and are usually installed in low-rise bungalows or villas. Such a jali comprises small perforations in a sheet of concrete and is an effective way to combat the hot Indian climate (especially in northern India). These jalis are fixed and are available in various patterns; they provide light and adequate ventilation to the home.Jalis give a traditional look to the home.ConsIt provides limited views of the outdoors, hence most homeowners prefer windows that can open, instead of jalis.
12. We love: The lattice work All day, this dining spot sees the play of light and shadow by the sun streaming in through jalis aptly shaped like sunflowers. The exposed cement walls, the patterned clay floor and the greens on the room’s peripheries hone in the earthiness of the decor.Designed by: Ankit PrabhudesaiWhere: India
