Denny’s brand new home in Thrissur is a magnificent residence where the classics of traditional architecture go hand in hand with the elegance of contemporary style. The owner, who runs a business in Dubai, has looked forward to renowned architect MM Jose to design a comfortable home on the land he inherited as his ancestral property. The family wanted the house to look plain and minimal from the outside. Meanwhile, they wanted spacious and spacious interiors. Since the family had moved abroad and would only be home during the holidays, they had decided to build a one-story house. The height of this house features elegant features of the Kerala architectural style while the interiors boast modern amenities.
Short boundary walls were built to enjoy the magnificent beauty of the height from the road. In addition, the aesthetically designed landscape perfectly complements the stylish look of jeans. The cobblestone, lush lawns, a beautiful garden and driveway lined with rows of shady trees add a unique charm to the landscape. The GI truss roof is built on a flat roof. In addition, roof tiles are laid on the lattice roof to give it a traditional appeal. These high quality imported roof tiles are durable and can easily withstand the tropical weather of Kerala.
Most of the trees in the expansive grounds have been preserved to add a green canopy around the structure. There is a paddy field behind the house. The interiors are designed to take in the cool breeze from the field. For example, in the bedroom at the back, sentinel glass windows are mounted on the wall. These glass windows are sturdy and can be opened from the sides.
Designed at 5600 m2, this incredible mansion features a driveway, living area, formal and family living spaces, dining area, kitchen with work area and four bedrooms. The long sitting is an interesting feature. A seating area is also arranged here to enjoy the calming view of the lush green landscape.
Open interiors look and feel spacious. The dining area and kitchen are visually connected, but enjoy enough privacy.
The interior walls mostly give off the white tone. However, the gray coating works on the walls of the living room and the formal living area break the monotony and add a perfect contrast.
The sumptuous elegance of Italian marble flooring elevates the overall ambiance of the interior. Meanwhile, leather-covered personalized furniture pieces were used in the common areas.
Sentry glass windows are also mounted on a wall in the formal living area. Beautiful view of nature outside from this window can be caught from here.
A central courtyard is arranged in this house, just like in traditional houses. Interestingly, the common areas are designed around the courtyard. The courtyard’s skylight brings plenty of natural light into the house.
Bedrooms are large and efficient. The bedrooms attached to the bathroom also have lockers and separate dressing areas for storage.
Kitchen cabinets, meanwhile, are made of wood with a laminate and lacquered glass finish. The bench is coated with nano white.
The family is delighted that their simple one-story home has become the talk of the town with its elegant features and spacious interiors.
