Thomaskutti’s brand new house at Kandanad near Udayamperur in Ernakulam district in Kerala stands out for its eye catching elevation which facilitates abundant supply of natural air and light. This fabulous abode that looks unique was designed by builder Antony Joseph and his sons Amjo and Asel who are architects.
The house stands in a 15 cents ‘L’ shaped plot. The structure was built by retaining the well and the coconut trees that stand in the plot. The GI sheet screen enhanced with beautiful CNC cutting is the highlight of the exteriors. Walls decorated with brick cladding add to the rustic charm of the exteriors.
Built in 3600 sqft, this amazing mansion has a car porch, sit out, living and dining areas, three courtyards, four bedrooms, kitchen with work area, upper living area and balcony. The open spaces and the courtyards ensure excellent air circulation and illuminate the house with natural sunshine.
A water body in which ornamental fishes are grown has been arranged beneath the stairway.
The sit out, meanwhile, is designed in the floating style without any pillars. The formal living area is in double height. The courtyards beside the living and the dining areas and near the corridor in the ground floor are really spectacular. Thomaskutti’s wife is passionate about gardening and loves making her house a haven of greenery. So, each courtyard is decorated with lots of beautiful indoor plants which give a refreshing ambience to the interiors.
The stairway leads to a spacious living area. This area is separated using rolling shutter. Interestingly, the living area could be merged with the open terrace to make a spacious hall if this shutter is rolled up. This is the perfect space to host parties or small gatherings.
The bedrooms are bath attached and have in – built wardrobes for storage. The bay windows are the highlight in the bedrooms. So, couches or any other seating arrangements aren’t arranged in the bedrooms.
The kitchen cabinets are done in multi wood finish. The counter top, meanwhile, has been paved with granite. A quaint breakfast counter too has been arranged as part of the kitchen.
The architects deserve credit for designing such a mesmerizing abode by overcoming the challenges posed by a uniquely shaped plot. Meanwhile, the family is thrilled that their dream dwelling is a mesmerizing spot of greenery where natural light and air are in abundance.
