This elegant house in Kozhikode is in perfect harmony with the nature, with lots of spaces where the family members and guests can enjoy precious moments in the company of nature. The 3650 sq ft house stands on a 12 cents plot and has family and formal living spaces, dining area, courtyards, 4 bedrooms and kitchen.
The spacious family living space is actually the soul of the house where the family members gather to have a gala time. There is a TV unit here. From the family living space one can enter the kitchen, an adjacent courtyard and the 2 bedrooms on the ground floor. The bay window with seating arrangements is the highlight here. The bay window opens into the beautiful kitchen garden filled with fresh greens and vegetables.
An elaborate metal art work, which adorns the wall, welcomes the guests to the formal living area. There is no TV here as it may ruin a pleasant conversation with guests.
The interior courtyard has been turned into a prayer area as well. Lots of sunshine enters through this space, lighting up the entire house. As there is a glass roof over the courtyard, rain water wouldn’t gush into the house.
Two gates are installed as there are practicing doctors residing in the house. One is for the family members and the other is for the patients who come to consult the doctors. While doing landscaping, instead of building a wall, finger palm has been used to separate the pathway leading to the consulting room.
There is another courtyard adjacent to the family living space. Lush green plants and a small spring adorn this courtyard making it beautiful and charming.
Spaces are wisely utilized on the first floor as well. The balcony has been converted into an elegant space where family and friends can gather for a nice chat. An art work using mud bricks is a designer element here. Industrial work is done on the roof and paved with mud tiles.
