The Aesthetic Beauty Of Goan Houses

Goa is one of the most beautiful and most visited holiday destinations in India. Along with beaches, churches and forts, the traditional Goan houses are the main lures of this green urban location. Most of the Goan houses were built between the 18th century and the early part of the 20th century. They exhibit a mixture of neo-Classic and neo-Gothic styles of design and construction. These designs were affected by many factors, such as protection from the severe monsoons rains. Also, the Portuguese rule allowed Goans to travel abroad and when Goans returned they brought with them ideas and influences from other countries. These master builders executed these ideas using local building materials, making the Goan houses a mixture and adaptation of design elements and influences from all over the world.They adopted a European outlook but did not cut themselves off from their Indian roots as well. The resulting cultural fusion affected house design and made them all the more lovely.

These beautiful houses in Goa were designed with not only astronomically accomplished architects but also with the knowledge of sun motion. These builders used the display of sunlight to illuminate the interiors. The big doors and windows were of typically rectangular halls and a long side of the building facing north or south that helped in taking maximum advantage of sunlight. This traditional architecture is designed in proportion to climatic conditions. The central outdoor space was called “Balcao” with seats built into its two reverse sides best suited for warm humid tropical climate with a distinct Goan identity of columned porches and long pillars. “Balcao” served as a shaded meeting place that allowed light and ventilation into the building. This space was oriented towards the south or north in most of the noble houses in order to avoid direct sunlight penetration for most of the year.
