The elegant house of Muhammed Rafi, an expatriate, stands on a 9 cents narrow plot in Azhiyur near Mahe. The elevation of the house is specially designed to suit the structure of the plot. The family had demanded that there should be abundant supply of natural light and air, and that the house should be easy to maintain. The structure has been designed with enough open spaces. The elegance of the white hue dominates the exteriors and the interiors. A touch of military green shade enhances the chic look of the exteriors.
There are living and dining areas, kitchen and four bedrooms in this house which has an area of 2400 sqft. The interiors are not overcrowded with décor or harsh colors. This makes it easier to maintain the house. The house is designed without adding many interior walls and this feature ensures excellent ventilation.
Exquisite marble, paved on the floor, add a regal charm to the interiors. Most of the furniture are newly bought and suits the interiors well. Six people can be comfortably seated on the wooden dining table. An inner courtyard has been arranged adjacent to the dining area.
The inner courtyard, designed in double height, is the most highlighting feature of the house. This space is decorated with indoor plants and shiny pebbles on floor. There is no need to switch on the lights or fans inside the house during the day time. The stair way leads to a spacious hall in the upper landing.
The bath attached bedrooms are designed by meticulously utilizing the spaces. Full length wardrobes are arranged in all the rooms.
The modular kitchen is done in laminate finish. A small breakfast counter completes the kitchen.
This house which emanates the charm of minimal style was built on a budget of Rs 55 lakhs, including the structure, boundary wall and furnishing.
