Binod Scaria wanted his dream home that he planned to build at his 14 cents plot in Velluthuruthi in Kottayam, Kerala to be unique and special. He didn’t want his house to feature the usual designs and styles. The triangular exterior, which is not very common, instantly draws attention for its uniqueness and elegance. Besides, this shape makes the house look amazing from all sides. A perfect blend of bricks, natural stones and jali works lends classy charm to the exteriors. The structure is built by leaving space in the front so that the stunning beauty of the house could be viewed in all its glory. Natural grass and stones are paved to decorate the front yard.
The house stands near a beautiful paddy field from where the cool wind blows. The upper balcony is installed with jali (intricate ornamental openwork) to receive this pleasant breeze.
This beautiful house, designed in 2195 sqft, has a car porch, sit out, living and dining areas, kitchen with an adjacent work area and four bedrooms as well.
The ground floor is designed in the open style. The living and the dining areas, the stairway and the open kitchen entry are spread on both sides of the spacious central hall. Vitrified tiles are paved on the floor. Tiles, in different colors and finish, are used for flooring in each room.
A glass door is installed on a wall in the hall. Lots of natural sunshine and breeze would come into the house if this door is opened. Rolling shutters too are installed here for added security.
Expensive timber is not used for furnishing and décor in this house. This has helped reduce the expenses significantly. The doors and windows in the interiors are made using UPVC.
Three bedrooms are in the upper storey from where the beautiful views of the paddy fields and the cool breeze could be enjoyed. Meanwhile, there is one bedroom in the ground floor. All the bedrooms are bath attached with in–built wardrobes for storage and separate dressing spaces. An outer courtyard too is arranged close to an upper storey bedroom.
Well designed artificial lighting makes the interior spaces look extremely pleasant and beautiful. The warm tone lighting makes the house incredibly attractive, especially at night. The family is happy that their dream dwelling has become the talk of the town.
