Vinod’s brand new house in Attingal in Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, features an amazing fusion of traditional charm and the chic style of contemporary architecture. The compound wall and the traditional padipura (gateway) that are enhanced with natural stone claddings are truly spectacular.
The sit-out has a charupadi or a traditional in – built wooden seat with contoured backrest. The family wanted a single storey house; hence all the facilities have been beautifully arranged. Designed in 2300 sq ft area, this fabulous abode has living and dining areas, three bedrooms and a kitchen with a work area.
The interiors are designed in the open style. The 'nadumuttam' or the central courtyard is the highlight of the interiors. The perfect symmetry of the spaces allows beautiful view of the nadumuttam from the padipura itself. The stunning mural paintings on the courtyard pillars and the fragrant magnolias in the courtyard lend a remarkable ambience. The pergola ceiling above the courtyard welcomes pleasant sunshine that illuminates the interiors.
The interior walls don neutral shades of hues that are extremely pleasant to the eyes. Meanwhile, the minimal furnishing and the elegant furniture pieces add oodles of charm to the spaces. The simple living area and the dining-cum-open kitchen are really specious. The C-shaped kitchen boasts of the regal elegance of teak wood and veneer furnish.
The bedrooms are bath-attached and have in built wardrobes and side tables. The classy elegance of the lighter shades is the highlight of the bedrooms. The headrests here are projected with interesting design elements. The family, meanwhile, is thrilled that they got the perfect fusion house just as they had dreamed.
