Padmaprasad, who works as a teacher wanted a simple house that suits a small family in his hometown in Manjeri, Malappuram. He preferred a single-storey house to nourish the familial bonds and also to make maintenance easier.
GI truss roof has been paved on flat roof. As there is vacuum space between these, the interiors aren’t too hot.
Designed in 2400 sqft, this amazing abode has a sit-out, formal living area, courtyard, dining space, kitchen with a work area, three bedrooms and bathrooms.
The house has been designed as per the rules of the Vastusastra. So, the interiors boast of excellent air circulation and natural light.
The custom-made furniture pieces including a cot, wardrobes and cupboard perfectly match the general theme of the house.
Interestingly, wooden textured tiles have been mostly used for flooring in common areas.
The courtyard that lets in golden sunshine and cooling rain showers is the highlight of the interiors. Indoor plants too add a charming elegance to this area. The pooja space too faces the courtyard.
Meanwhile, the living area has been arranged by ensuring enough privacy. The dining and kitchen areas are designed in an open theme. The counter that separates these areas are used as a quaint breakfast counter too.
Full-length wardrobes are arranged in the bedrooms for storage. Besides, study areas too are separated here. Bay windows where one could sit or lie down are the highlights of the bedrooms.
The kitchen cabinets are done in multi-wood with a PU paint finish. The countertop, meanwhile, has been paved with white tiles.
This house is a perfect example of a simple yet elegant dwelling that perfectly fulfils the needs of a nuclear family.
