Mavelikkara house
There are living and dining areas, kitchen and work area, 5 bedrooms, upper living space and home theater in this elegant home which has an area of 4000 sq ft.

Dr. Prashant, a native of Cherukole in Mavelikkara, Kerala, is proud of his house which got a recent makeover, with more modern facilities. The old house which was more than 20 years old had space constraints. Besides, there wasn’t adequate supply of fresh air and natural light in the interiors. The family decided to renovate their house as they wanted to transform it into a chic and modern abode.

Truss works were done in layers by retaining the sloped roof. The roof paved with concrete tiles gives the house a unique and contemporary look. White and grey shades adorn the exterior walls. Cladding tiles enhance the stylish look of the house.

Many walls in the interiors which separated spaces were demolished to make it more open, vast and spacious. The hall, which consists of the dining area and the stair way, is redone in double height. These new features make the interior look vast.

The glass ceiling on the roof not only adds to the overall look of the house but also illuminates the interiors with natural light. More windows are added to ensure excellent cross-ventilation. The strip ceiling, done in the interiors, using teak planks is an eye catching feature. The cove lighting done in between these planks makes the interiors look pleasant always.

The old concrete stairway which took up lots of space was completely demolished. The new stairway made in the MS and teak combination adds a regal charm to the interiors. Toughened glass is installed on the hand railings. There is a living area at the upper landing, with a modern home theater adjacent to it.
