Linu Raj, a native of Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, and his family are incredibly proud and elated that they have been able to build their dream dwelling, overcoming the spatial challenges posed by a small piece of land. The 3000 sqft house that stands in 4.75 cents has living and dining areas, kitchen, pooja area, home theater, bar counter, internal courtyard and four bath attached bedrooms. It was architect Radhakrishnan of the SDC Architects, who designed this beautiful house that has all the facilities required for a middle class family.
The elevation of this house features a unique straight line formation which makes it stand out from the other houses in the locality. The stone claddings and louvers enhance the classy look of the exteriors.
The interiors are designed in the open style and partitions have been avoided to separate the living and the dining areas and the kitchen. Neutral shades of colours, which are soothing for the eyes, dominate the interior spaces.
The charming courtyard is the highlight of the interiors. The pleasant sun shine that comes in through the sky light illuminates this space. The door-cum-window in the dining area lets in lots of cool breeze. It helps maintain amazing atmosphere inside the house especially in the dining and living areas and in the kitchen as well.
The courtyard is beautified with indoor plants and the hint of green here goes amazingly well with the surrounding neutral shades. A classic combination of glass and wood are used on the stairway. Unique light fittings and hanging lights enhance the chic look of the interiors. Aluminum composite panels are used for all the wood works in this house.
The bedrooms aren’t overcrowded with decor to ensure that they are filled with tranquil charm. Wardrobe and dressing areas are arranged in all the bath attached bedrooms. The long windows in the rooms welcome lots of natural light and fresh air inside.
It is the classic charm of the wooden finish that makes the kitchen impeccably stunning. Enough storage spaces are arranged in the kitchen. Nano white is paved on the counter top. A coffee table completes the kitchen.
This scintillatingly beautiful house proves that a perfect abode, fitting for a middle-class family, could easily be built on a small plot.
