Binu Vishwam’s brand new house at the charming countryside of Poonkunnam in Thrissur district, Kerala has already become the talk of the town for its chic exteriors and amazingly furnished interiors. The house that stands in a 12 cents rectangular plot has been constructed by retaining the grand old mango tree in the front yard. The elevation features the contemporary box style design.
The show wall here is highlighted with attractive natural stone cladding. Interestingly, the same design pattern and natural stone cladding is followed on the compound wall too. Meanwhile, natural stones and pavement stones have been paved in alternate layers in the front yard. An eye catching square pattern has been used to separate the well in the yard.
Designed in 2400 sqft, this fabulous abode has a sit out, living and dining areas, courtyard, pooja space, kitchen, four bath attached bedrooms, upper living area and a balcony too. Vitrified tiles have been used for flooring in the common areas. Meanwhile, wooden finished tiles add a rustic charm to the bedrooms. Interestingly, the custom made furniture pieces aren’t made using timber. Instead, alternate materials that look spectacular and are durable have been used for this.
The entrance door opens to the spacious and elegantly furnished living area. A TV wall has been separated here by highlighting it with natural stones. From here one could enter the dining hall where the splendidly designed courtyard instantly grabs attention. The spacious courtyard with the pergola skylight illuminates the interior spaces with golden sunshine. Artificial grass has been paved on the floor here. Meanwhile, attractive wooden panelling adds a classy charm to this area. The pooja space is comfortably separated beside this courtyard.
The readymade dining table is compact and looks amazing too. A crockery shelf and a wash area complete the spacious dining space. The wash area, meanwhile, has a huge mirror and beautiful light fitting which add an enchanting ambience to this area.
The bedrooms have lots of storage spaces and full length wardrobes. Moreover, the attached bathrooms make the rooms more functional too.
The modern kitchen has been designed on the classic black and white color combination. The cupboards here are done in mica and plywood with glass finish. The counter top, meanwhile, has been paved with granite. A work area too has been arranged as part of the kitchen.
Interestingly, this mesmerizing abode stands out for its eco friendly features too. The rainwater that falls on the roof is collected in tanks using channels and is filtered and used for well recharging. The elegance of minimalism and eco friendly features indeed grant a unique charm to this modern dwelling.
