An amazing blend of the classic colonial architecture and the chic contemporary style is what makes the elevation of this house in Kunnamkulam in Thrissur, Kerala, a head turner. The aesthetically designed landscape perfectly complements the exteriors by projecting its unique features. All the trees and plants that stood on the plot have been retained to fill the premises with as much greenery as possible. The courtyard in the front is the highlight of the exteriors. One could get into this courtyard from the living area of the house.
The family was very particular that the decor or other design features shouldn’t mar the grace of the spaces. So, each space in this house has been meticulously designed, giving prime importance to the needs and preferences of the family.
The ground floor has formal and family living areas, dining space, kitchen with an adjacent store room, master bedroom and a guest bedroom.
The entrance door opens to the foyer which leads to the living and dining space that are designed as a single module. The hanging lights, spot and cove lights play vital roles in making the interiors look breath – taking.
A wall in the living area is highlighted. The formal living and stair area is designed in double height. The play area for kids has been arranged behind the show wall that is part of the elevation. One could enter this area from the dining space.
The open courtyard is the liveliest spot in the house. The spaces are arranged around the courtyard. This area is designed by altering the floor level a bit. The stairway, meanwhile, is just beside the courtyard. The stunning combination of wood, glass and MS makes the stairway an amazing designer feature.
The modern kitchen is vast and spacious. Granite is paved on the counter top. Meanwhile, multi wood is used for the cabinets. An adjacent store room completes the kitchen area.
The upper storey has 2 bedrooms, living area and a TV room. The bedrooms have all the modern facilities. Besides, the huge windows bring lots of sun shine and fresh air into the bedrooms. Sitting spaces too are arranged as part of the windows here.
The design and arrangement of the spaces in this house perfectly reflect the life style and the likes of the family members. The house sports unique looks during the day and the night. The beautiful spaces exude positive vibes which inspire the family as well.
