The traditional houses in the coastal region of Nagapattinam, Tamil Nadu in India located in a warm humid zone represent a unique phenomenon with unique device capable to meet the comfort demand through environmental well adapted design. The traditional house and modern house in the coastal region of Nagappattinam are examined by comparing the thermal performance within the same outdoor condition and the climatic region of Nagappattinam. In this paper, a simplified thermal comparison of a traditional house with a contemporary house have been given by using only data derived from the measurements This paper represents that the traditional houses in the coastal region of Nagappattinam provided useful indicators of appropriate architectural design response for future modern buildings.
