Perched on a lofty corner seat, this house in Thodupuzha is perfectly in sync with the nature. The architect was very particular about having a design that would go hand in hand with the terrain. He didn’t want the surrounding environment to be affected in any way. While the exterior of the 3.000 sq. ft. single story house is a fusion of colonial and contemporary architecture styles, its interiors completely follow a contemporary style design.
The entrance to the house is after a porch and a huge veranda. There is a beautiful open courtyard here. An aesthetically decorated living room comes next. A curio shelf placed here acts as a partition to separate the rooms and also showcases decorative articles.
A central courtyard with pergola glass and cross ventilation ensures ample natural lighting in the interiors. The dining area and open kitchen follow a grey and white theme. There is a small breakfast counter in the kitchen. Marine ply lamination has been given for the remaining surfaces.
There are four bedrooms with attached bathroom in the house. False ceiling with custom built lighting fixtures add to the beauty of the interiors.
The attic with truss roofing also doubles up as a utility room. Landscaping has been done in the front yard with a small garden. The charm and allure of this house is so compelling that you just can’t get enough of it.
