A budget friendly house with interiors that give total privacy of the family members and a connection to the ancestral home, which is in the same plot at Olivilam near Mahi. These were the only two demands Favas and his wife Shafna made to their designer when they tasked him with building their dream abode.
Today, the couple’s 3,400 square feet house stands tall in 12 cents as a fine example of the minimal contemporary style. Considering maximum space utility, the elevation of the house is box structured. To ease the summer heat, industrial roofing sheet is used on the upper roof. The natural stone flooring and the small courtyard in front of the house add to the charm of the building.
The walls of the living room are decorated with fabric coating. The gypsum veneer false ceiling with LED lights and the custom-made furniture make the entire space look pleasant and comfortable.
The dining area is elaborate with an eight seater dining table and a decorative lamp hung above it. The wash area is set in a closed style.
There is a small prayer nook near the living room. The teak staircase decorated with glass is indeed a masterpiece, which enhances the elegance of this house.
On the top floor, there is a small sitting space and a TV unit. The space below the stair case is a small family living area. The multi wood panel ensures enough privacy for this space.
The four bedrooms are bath attached and the kids’ room has two beds. There is a balcony in one of the bedrooms on the top floor.
The kitchen is designed in a minimal style with a small breakfast counter. From the kitchen, there is a corridor, which connects to the ancestral home.
The front side of the house is made beautiful by doing landscaping. The small green meadows on the either sides are the perfect spots to spend a relaxing evening. The design of the boundary wall matches the house.
