Baby Sukumaran and his family had many dreams about their brand-new house at Vazhakode near Vadakkancherry in Thrissur, Kerala. They wanted the house to be in sync with the surrounding nature as well as the climate. Moreover, the interiors of the house should welcome lots of cool breeze and natural sunshine. The plot is about five feet above the road level. So, the architect took advantage of this naturally unique feature while preparing the plan.

The front yard has been designed in two layers in order to enjoy the majestic elevation. Bangalore stones and artificial grass are paved in alternate layers on the driveway. Meanwhile, the lower layer has verdant lawns of buffalo grass. The slanting roof suits the climate of the region, which receives ample sunshine and rain. GI truss roof has been installed over the flat ceiling. Meanwhile, the cavity space between the roofs could be used as a utility area. Moreover, this helps in reducing the heat inside the house.

Designed in 2658 sqft, this beautiful abode has a sit-out, formal and family living areas, dining space, kitchen with a work area, two bedrooms and bathrooms on the ground floor. Meanwhile, there are two more bedrooms and a balcony on the upper floor.

The interiors are designed in a semi-open style to make the spaces look and feel vast. The corridor that includes the stair area connects the living and dining areas. Lots of storage spaces are arranged in the bedrooms. Besides, there are full-length wardrobes here. Moreover, the well-equipped bathrooms are separated into wet and dry areas using glass partitions.

The kitchen is furnished in the classy white-wooden-grey theme. The cabinets are done in marine plywood with a laminate finish. Meanwhile, nano white has been paved on the countertop. The quaint breakfast counter in the centre gives the ambience of a modern island kitchen.

The terrace has been turned into a cosy reading room by enclosing it using a roofing sheet. Beautiful jali patterns have been used to connect this space with the stair area. Designer elements like this truly elevate the ambience of the spaces in the house. The elevation shines against the twilight sky when the highlighter lamps are switched on.
