This house at Shoranur in Palakkad offers a veritable feast for the eyes. Designed in fusion style, the house has an area of 3,735 sq ft and is built on a 10-cent plot.
The roofing is slope, flat and curved at different levels, increasing the attraction. A white-grey theme is the highlight of the exterior. Louvres on the elevation enable proper ventilation, in addition to giving good looks to the house. A formal living space, family living area, dining, kitchen and five bedrooms comprise the interior. Greenery surrounds the main gate and a courtyard is built adjacent to the sit-out. Creepers spread from here to the roof.
The grandeur of Italian marble is evident in the common areas, while the bedrooms have wooden flooring. Plywood-veneer finish is given to the furnishings. Brightening the interiors are the gypsum false ceiling and the warm toned lighting.
A courtyard next to the family living area is the highlight of the house. Natural light through the skylight illuminates the interior while sliding glass doors are attached between the living area and the courtyard.
All the five bedrooms have been designed with proper attention given to storage and ventilation. The wooden flooring is an attraction and floor-to-ceiling windows allow enough light to stream in. All bedrooms have attached bathrooms and dressing area.
The modular kitchen is furnished as a built-in facility. While Korean stone is laid on the counter, the cupboards are made of marine plywood.
On the upper floor, a multi-purpose area which can be used as a party area also is arranged along with the living room. Another interesting feature of the house is a mini garden on the open terrace.
The landscaping gels seamlessly with the house. The greenery on the compound is striking and natural stone and grass are placed in an aesthetically pleasing manner. The lawns and flowering plants make the premises more attractive.
After darkness sets in, when the lights are switched on, the house looks even more beautiful.
