It was five years ago that Johnson began building his house at Koovappady in Ernakulam, Kerala. However, the construction could not be completed then. Years later, Johnson had approached designer Linson Jolly requesting him to help him resume the construction of the house. The house, which was initially designed in 2900 sq ft got transformed into a charming abode in 3094 sq ft area after the refurbishment. Without knocking down any part of the old structure or adding too many extra features, the house was transformed into an elegant dwelling with all the modern facilities.
New ideas, interesting design features and themes were added to suit the likes and interests of family members. The elevation and the interiors feature the mesmerizing charm of the contemporary architecture style. All the pillars of the old structure were retained by just giving them a makeover. The vast and spacious interiors don the lighter shades of hues which makes the spaces look extremely pleasant. Partition elements or projections are not used here as design elements.
It is the unique designs, that give prominence to utility, that make the formal and the family living areas, dining space, kitchen, prayer area and the stairway extremely comfortable. The custom-made furniture and other furnishings are designed to suit the general theme of the house. The bar counter in the house is a newly added feature.
There are four bedrooms in this house. These rooms with all the required facilities are designed by giving prime importance to comfort and cosiness.
The beautiful interior courtyard and the stunning light fittings play significant roles in enhancing the overall look and ambience of the house.
Furnishings in multi-wood and plywood laminations make the L-shaped kitchen a perfect spot. Granite is paved on the counter top. Meanwhile, the back splash features designer toughened glass work.
Architect Linson Jolly of the Delarch Architects says that a house attains perfection only when it is designed as per the aspirations, life style and interests of the owners.
