The fusion house owned by Vahid, an expatriate, at his hometown in Kottakkal in Malappuram, Kerala has been the talk of the town for its mind-blowing design features. The chic style of Western architecture blends well with the tropical designs to suit the unique weather pattern of Kerala. The modish features and stellar amenities in this premium abode ensure a luxurious living experience, just as the family has wished.
The owner who had been impressed by the classy style of European architecture preferred the same for his dream abode too. However, he chose sloped roof as Kerala is famed for its strong monsoons. Truss work has been installed above the flat roof and then paved with ceramic tiles to add that perfect finish.
The car porch, meanwhile, has been designed in the colonial theme with dormer windows and elegant colours.
Designed in 3200 sqft, this luxury mansion has a car porch, sit out, living and dining areas, prayer room, kitchen with a work area and three bedrooms in the ground floor. Meanwhile, there are two more bedrooms and an open terrace in the upper floor.
The interiors are designed in the semi open style to bring in lots of natural sun shine and cool breeze. The entrance door opens to the spacious formal living area with a double height ceiling. The glass ceiling illuminates the rooms with golden sun rays. The tiles with Italian marble finish have been mostly used for flooring. However, the wooden finished tiles in the formal living area add to the fabulous ambience of this room.
Interestingly, each area in the house is custom designed, giving a unique look and personality to the spaces. For instance, the owner’s father prefers watching the television while having food. So, a TV unit that can be rotated 360 degrees has been installed. It could be adjusted to suit the preferences of the family members.
The staircase designed in the floating style begins from the dining area. Wooden planks have been fixed on a sturdy steel structure. Meanwhile, the glass hand railings look incredibly attractive.
The custom-made dining table has a white marble table top and can accommodate up to eight guests. Meanwhile, the adjacent wash area has been turned into a green courtyard with skylight ceiling and indoor plants.
The kitchen cabinets are done in PVC sheet with mica laminate finish. The counter top, meanwhile, has been paved with granite.
The bedrooms are lavishly decorated and boasts of all the modern facilities. The bath attached bedrooms have wardrobes and separate dressing spaces too.
The owner was abroad when the construction of the house was progressing. He oversaw the construction with the help of social media and video calls. The family had conveyed their interests and demands way before the construction had begun. So, they didn’t have any tension when it came to executing the plan. Vahid and his family are thrilled to move into their brand – new house that perfectly reflect their dream.
