Siraj’s brand new mansion at Kundungal in Kozhikode district, Kerala is a fine example of a premium abode that boasts of all the modern amenities. The family desired to have a spacious front yard even though the house stands on a 12 cents rectangular plot. So, the structure has been built by leaving a front yard which is 6 meters wide. This area is stunningly designed with an elegant landscape and garden too.
The wall highlighted with elegant cladding tiles and a fabulous show wall enhanced with concealed glass lights on the box elevation instantly grabs attention. The spectacular design features of the house are projected when these lights are switched on at night. The canopy sections of the car porch and the balcony are built using C channel.

From the sit-out, one could reach the formal living area through a foyer that has wooden flooring. The imported furniture pieces exude classy elegance and gel well with the theme of the house. The interiors are decorated with beautiful indoor plants that add a hint of greenery. The inner courtyard is visible as soon as the entrance door opens. Being the focal point of the house, the inner spaces are arranged around this courtyard. The pergola skylight on the ceiling brings lots of golden sunshine into the house. The central area of the house is well lit during the day time and there is no need to switch on the lights.
The living areas are connected to the pleasant landscape outside. An outdoor balcony has been built adjacent to the formal living area. Similarly, there is courtyard just beside the dining area too. A tinted mirror that is hung on the wall in the dining area is an interesting feature. The courtyard ceiling here is in triple height. So, besides being an excellent designer piece, the mirror reflects the vastness of this space making the area look incredibly spacious.
The curios, wall frames, paintings, wall papers and hanging lights that adorn the interiors are unique. Interestingly, most of these items were purchased directly from foreign countries including Dubai. Interestingly, the owner was all game to experiment with the flooring. Hence, a splendid blend of vitrified tiles and natural wooden flooring, that grants a majestic look to the interiors, has been used.
The transparent stairway is trendy and has hand railings in wood and toughened glass combination. The double height wall beside the stairway is highlighted with marble cladding.
An MS partition is what separates the family living area and the dining space. The stairway, meanwhile, is built using GI box sections.
