@Sara K.: I could be wrong, but it looks like a type of bamboo palm such as a Butterfly palm or a Parlor palm or Areca palm. Family name: Chamaedorea

living in harmony with the environment that surrounds the house rather than oppose it is the way forward in furture building practices..gone are the days that we should only build to please ourselves, it should be the norm and not exception to build such sustainable homes. bravo to the team. Kerala too has a lot of sustainable practices but sadly got bypassed in the race to look better than the joneses. now the trend is reversing. I look forward to similar articles from Kerala as there are no article on Houzz yet.
