Located in Kerala, the house designed by an interior designer in Mumbai embraces the tropical surroundings and reflects a simple lifestyle through its minimalistic interiors. The design focuses on a balanced ratio of built and unbuilt spaces, seamlessly connecting the indoors with the outdoors.
While traditional architecture is prevalent in the area, the client desired a contemporary style that incorporates vernacular materials and techniques. Local kiln-fired bricks and reclaimed wood are used for construction, adding to the authenticity of the design. The interior design is minimalist yet richly layered, combining local materials such as Jaisalmer yellow sandstone, wood, stone, and concrete walls, along with slate flooring tiles. The furniture floats in clean spaces, complemented by open and closed shelving, indoor plants, and art that transform the house into a home. The functionality of the space is also considered, exemplified by the incorporation of a rock in the dining table, representing an integral part of the site.
This home successfully blends modern design within a context rich in traditional architecture, creating a harmonious and contemporary living environment.
