1200 sft | Trivandrum, Kerala
This compact 1200 sq. ft home rises above the surrounding terrain with its striking clerestory roof and a facade that captures the vernacular architectural style of Travancore in a modern context. The site, lying much lower than the abutting road, and the large well located centrally posed a unique and challenging design problem. The decision to raise the living spaces, helped in enhancing the indoor living quality by providing better lighting, airflow, and views, while simultaneously creating a unique self-contained parking space. The home reflects the simplicity of the client’s lifestyle and follows the principle of understated yet thoughtfully designed and detailed spaces.
