The Kothari Building on Nungambakkam High Road is one of the first buildings in Chennai to use sun control louvers as a shading device. In Tarapore Tower, another landmark building on Anna Salai that Chitale designed, he used solid fire-proof walls between the individual shops, so that in case of a fire in one shop it would be contained in that area.
“ I believe that every building should have its own identity created by a simple and expressive architecture corresponding to its specific functions and location,” S.L. Chitale
