Sasi Sankar has built his brand new house close to his ancestral home in the serene countryside of Perinthalmanna in Malappuram. After living in lots of places owing to his job, the owner wanted to settle in a simple yet elegant house to enjoy his retired life.
The house stands in the centre of a plot that is surrounded by lush greenery. Moreover, the structure features the traditional architectural style that never fails to impress. Old roofing tiles from the ancestral home have been reused on the sloped roof. This grants a rustic charm to the exteriors.
The interiors exude the beautiful grace of minimal style that fills the spaces with amazing ambience. There aren’t any brighter colours or design gimmicks that mar the elegance of the spaces.
Designed in 2000 sqft, this amazing abode has a car porch, sit-out, living and dining areas, kitchen with a work area, four bedrooms and an upper living area.
The house has been designed giving prime importance to an abundant supply of cool breeze and natural light. Besides, there is perfect cross ventilation too. Lots of windows and double-height spaces ensure a pleasant ambience inside the house. The double-height spaces, meanwhile, act as links between both the floors besides making the interiors look vaster.
Tiles with rustic-grey finish have been paved on the floor. Most of the furniture is designed as in-built pieces made of cement plastered slabs. In the living area, cushion upholstery has been done over it to make it comfortable and elegant.
Interestingly, the sitting on one side of the dining has been designed as part of a bay window.
The staircase acts as a partition that separates the living and dining areas. The hand railings, meanwhile, are done in MS with paint finish. Attaching the wash basin to the staircase is a unique idea that is space efficient too.
There are two bedrooms in the ground floor while two more are in the upper floor. The bedrooms have windows opening to the greenery outside.
The kitchen cupboards are built in plywood with mics finish. The counter top, meanwhile, has been paved with granite.
The construction of this fabulous dwelling, including the structure and furnishing, was completed on an affordable budget of Rs 45 lakh. It is quite pocket friendly compared to the construction charges that are sky rocketing these days.
