Kiran and Pavithra who work at the Technopark in Thiruvananthapuram preferred a cosy house instead of a flat when they decided to settled down. They roped in noted architect Radhakrishnan to design their dream abode in a 4 cents' plot.
In a city where land costs a bomb, it was vital to design a structure by efficiently managing the spaces. The elevation features a flat box style which is perfect for a small plot. Meanwhile, the wooden tile cladding strikes a beautiful contrast against the white walls.
The foldable sliding gate ensures that there is enough space in the front.
The interiors have been designed to suit the busy lifestyle of the family. It is incredibly easy to maintain the well-furnished and smartly designed interiors. Designed 1660 sqft, this amazing abode has a sit-out, living area, dining space, kitchen and a bath-attached bedroom on the ground floor. Meanwhile, there are two more bedrooms, living area and a balcony on the upper floor.
The formal living area is arranged adjacent to the entrance door, by ensuring enough privacy.
From here, one could enter the dining area. The glass door in the dining area opens to the quaint patio on the side.
Interestingly, the bedrooms are spacious and have lots of wardrobes for storage. The bath-attached bedrooms have separate dressing spaces too.
The modern kitchen is compact and has everything arranged within the hand’s reach. The partition that opens to the dining area could also be used as a breakfast counter.
The family feels proud when their friends comment that their house, with its spacious interiors and modern amenities, hardly looks like it has been built on a smaller plot.
