“When we thought about renovating our house, we did not know where we need to go for getting the right direction. We were very blessed and lucky to get connected to Suvarnarekha and Mrs. Nina Jacob very quickly, thanks to the internet. The design and details evolved so smoothly for the old house and the cattle house adjacent, into a spectacular combination of an elegant main house and outhouse. The brilliance of Mrs. Nina and the team at Suvarnarekha blended very much with our needs and made the project a smooth sail. The spot improvements and implementation of the creativity came into the project at every stage has made the final product impeccable on our renovation project. We will not have a second choice for our next project, God willing. Thank you Mrs. Nina and Team”

" Having limitations of a narrow plot, designing a good looking exterior for a house in my plot at Ambalapuzha was challenging. Suvarnarekha Architects and their wonderful team had delivered a beautiful design to my satisfaction. Ideas and sense of aesthetics were really impressive. Apart from the design, the other services rendered like supervision were excellent and made the construction hustle free which evidence the expertise. Thanks to Architect Nina Jacob and her Team."

We have a long association with Suvarnarekha and been very pleased with their services. We have a nearly 100-year-old property in the countryside in Vazhoor area, precisely at Mulayam. Mrs. Neena Korah Jacob renovated it brilliantly retaining its traditional appeal and old world charm. People fall in love with it instantly. It is called Teak Grove Country House and will very soon be relaunched as a unique Homestay and Week End Get Away with added facilities. It was featured in the popular magazine ’Inside outside’. It was Neena and her team who renovated our residence at Kalathilpady, Kallarackal House doing up our pantry and our bathrooms. We are fortunate to have had the services of Suvarnarekha and the very creative, competent architect in charge, Neena is today a personal and much-valued friend. We wish Suvarnarekha the very best in all its future endeavors. We will definitely seek their support in any future ventures.

I am writing this letter for Suvarnarekha whom we contacted as a design/build firm for the design and construction of our house way back in 2005. We chose Suvarnarekha- Top architects in Kerala, for several reasons, but mainly we felt a sense of integrity and cooperation during their presentation that was not seen among the other presenters. We have not been disappointed by that decision. Suvarnarekha has consistently been a true partner in this endeavor. They have worked diligently to save costs while not compromising quality or schedule. Construction meetings and other discussions have always been productive and positive. Construction was very cooperative throughout the project duration and reasonable in the negotiation of costs for changes in the work or additional work requested by us. The project was completed on a tight schedule to meet our requirements. We enjoyed working with Suvarnarekha and look forward to working with them again soon.

It gives me great pleasure to let all know that Suvarnarekha interior designers in kottayam have given us a cozy decor that blends with our style and mood, thus making living in our home a great place to be. I also like to take this opportunity to thank Mrs. Nina for undertaking this project, mainly because, she lives in Kottayam yet, used to come down to Chennai, whenever the need arose. Her ideas are innovative and creative with a touch of ethnicity and aesthetics. I now look forward to staying in my New house more often than I thought I would – thanks Nina , God bless!! May we do yet another one – I wish.

I had the good fortune to interview Mr.E.Sridaran, Chairman and Managing Director of Delhi Metro Rail Corporation Limited. Who is now on a visit to his homeland. As there were many other scribes haunting CIAL terminal for a news byte I had to take Mr.sridaran to our guest house at Nedumbassery for the interview. He was there with his elder brother, Sri. E.Govindan, (Director, Bharatheeya Vidya Bhavan) for nearly half an hour. Mr.sridaran was really impressed with the architectural beauty of our guest house. He inquired about the design and construction. ‘I should really send my architects over here to have a look at this beautiful structure. The use of natural light, flooring and the design seems so appropriate’, he commented.
