Exterior The design is contemporary-colonial.

The design is contemporary-colonial. The 2,250 sq ft house in Kumaranellur, Kottayam, stands elevated on 15 cents of land. The owner opted for a different style as the original conventional design did not gel with what he had visualized.

Interior The living, dining, kitchen, work area, bedroom and attached bathrooms find space in the ground floor.

Though the elevation gives the impression of sloped concrete roofs, in reality, the roofs have not been concreted. Instead, truff roofing sheets have been used for roof. Double roofs sloping down in an angle of 45 degrees were not easily concretable designs. Besides, the cost would escalate. Hence, roofing sheets were substituted in view of the practical difficulties. The floor below has been done in the box structure design, with sloping styles for the floor above.

The living, dining, kitchen, work area, bedroom and attached bathrooms find space in the ground floor. Custom-made furniture peps up the living room. Of the four bedrooms, three are down, and one up. A family living space up is where friends and family gather for some quality time. The flooring has been done up in granite and vitrified tiles.

Courtyard The courtyard, finished in plywood box and covered with coir, highlights the living ambiance.

The courtyard, finished in plywood box and covered with coir, highlights the living ambiance. Fold ceilings in the living as well as other rooms with their custom-made lighting, are high on visual grandeur. The house with its open-style design and cross ventilation lets in abundant air and light. The palms lining the landscaped garden highlights greening attempts. What makes the house look charming is its deft designing. Everything is packed to perfection and the design elements keep them compact.
