This is the story of someone’s dream home. Perched on a hilltop in Koratti, Kerala, this dream home's construction on 46 cents land was quite a challenge.
The biggest task was planning the house on an irregular and vertical landscape. As expected, the elevation is done in a contemporary box style. Interestingly, the house has a different view from different places. It has two floors as the house was built keeping the naturalness of the terraced plot. They have also opted for lightweight and environment-friendly AAC bricks for construction.
White is the main theme, and the interiors are given an open concept (eliminating barriers such as walls and doors), so you can immediately feel the spaciousness as you enter. So a sit-out, formal living, family living, dining, kitchen, workshop, four bedrooms, bathrooms, and balcony are covered in 3270 sq ft.
You can spot resort-style upholstered furniture in the formal living. The living room with a balcony is part of the open hall. You can’t miss the wall-mounted TV and lounger sofa in this space.
Another attraction would be the unique customized dining sets. They have used upholstered benches instead of chairs here. And the prayer area is massive with walls done in exposed rubble finish and a grilled and sealed roof.
The bedrooms give you the feel of being in a resort, with balconies that open out onto the greenery and sliding glass windows leading into it. The rooms are decorated with highlighting the head side wall, wallpaper, texture paint, and work on the ceiling.
There is a modern compact kitchen, a cute breakfast counter at the entrance, and cabinets done in multi-wood and PU finish. You would think it’s a large bird nest in the midst of greenery.
