Arun’s dream dwelling in the calming countryside of Ollur in Thrissur, Kerala instantly grabs attention for its unique elevation. The perfect fusion of traditional, colonial and contemporary architectural styles adds comfort and ambience to this modern house.
The elevation has a sloped roof on two sides and a flat roof in the centre. The jali wall in the brick finish in the middle is the highlight of the elevation. The dormer window in the tile paved roof and the wooden cladding on the wall grant a majestic charm. Meanwhile, the detached car porch has been built by paving sheets on GI structure.
Designed in 2000 sqft, this amazing abode has a car porch, sit-out, formal and family living areas, kitchen with a work area and two bedrooms on the ground floor. Meanwhile, there are two more bedrooms, upper living area and an open terrace on the upper floor.
The entrance door opens to the formal living area designed with a double-height ceiling. This makes the interiors look and feel vaster. The designer TV unit done in wooden strip panelling is an attractive feature here.
Interestingly, the family living area has been designed beneath the staircase making it extremely space efficient. Meanwhile, the custom-made furniture pieces gel well with the general theme of the house. Vitrified tiles with a matte finish have been paved on the floor in the common areas. Wooden finish tiles and lapotra granite too have been used for flooring in this house.
The wall highlighted with floated wooden panelling is what draws attention in the dining area. The wash area and the mirror with concealed LED light fittings are arranged as part of this wall.
The staircase is a simple GI structure with wooden steps. The GI hand railings add a chic elegance to the stairway.
The kitchen is spacious and has the cabinets done in plywood with a laminate finish. The countertop, meanwhile, has been paved with nano white. A quaint breakfast counter with high chairs on one side acts as a partition too.
The bedrooms have been designed in unique colour themes. The rooms have attached bathrooms and wardrobes for storage.
Unique designer features, pleasant colour themes and opulent interiors have made this house an icon in the neighbourhood.
