Vishnu Dev’s brand-new house that stands in an 8 cents plot in Chembazhanthi at Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala cleverly blends contemporary and traditional architectural styles.
The elevation stands out for its flat and sloped roof. Shingles have been paved on the sloping roof. Meanwhile, the wall is decorated with laterite cladding. The plants that adorn the open terrace adds an impeccable charm to the elevation.
Designed in 2500 sqft, this amazing abode has a sit-out, formal and family living areas, dining space, courtyard, kitchen with a work area, three bath attached bedrooms and office space too.
The couch in the formal living area has a fabric cushion sitting in an attractive olive-green hue. This adds a heartwarming touch of colour to this area. Meanwhile, the double-height ceiling makes this area look vaster. The wall on which the TV unit is installed is highlighted with texture paint.
The simple glass-top dining table has a bench on one side. Interestingly, the bay window here is a smart addition as it provides additional seating while bringing in natural light and air abundantly.
The spiral staircase, done in cast iron with a wooden finish, instantly grabs attention. Meanwhile, the sunlight that enters through the skylight on the double-height ceiling illuminates the interiors. A beautiful courtyard, decorated with artificial grass and natural indoor plants, has been arranged beneath the staircase.
The stairway leads to a quaint upper living area. The yellow cushioned couch adds a vibrant ambience to this area. Besides, a wooden hanging cot too is part of this cosy space.
The modern kitchen is designed in the fabulous colour theme of sky blue and white. The cabinets here are made using marine plywood with PU paint finish. The countertop, meanwhile, has been paved with nano white. An adjacent work area completes the kitchen space.
The kids’ bedrooms don a splash of vivid hues and patterns. The 3D wallpaper showcasing the characters from the famous Ice Age movie franchise is the main highlight.
Interestingly, the house that looks simple from the outside has luxurious interiors and boasts of all the amazing amenities.
