‘INARA,’ situated in the Kottayam District of Kerala, stands as a single-family residence designed to embody tranquility through architecture. The client’s vision was to create a modest dwelling that maximizes natural light and ventilation while maintaining privacy. The design aimed to seamlessly integrate indoor and outdoor spaces to enhance the overall user experience.
In response to the tropical climate, the architectural form blends traditional Kerala influences with a modern contemporary outlook. Positioned at the far end of the east-facing site, the house maximizes its visual potential. The front facade showcases two carefully positioned sloping roofs on a triangular wall with a bare concrete finish, reminiscent of traditional Kerala architecture.
Spatial planning follows an open concept, with a central passage connecting various spaces within the house. Varied floor levels, raised ceilings, and porous partitions enhance visual transparency, promoting passive cooling through ventilation and stack effect. A double-height family living area serves as a serene gathering space flooded with natural light and surrounded by vegetation, connecting the main active zones of the house.
The staircase, designed as a minimal element, separates the formal and informal living areas, preserving visual transparency. Bedrooms, dining space, and the formal living area overlook a courtyard near the family living, creating a visually soothing experience. Large windows and strategically placed skylights illuminate the family living area, casting dynamic light and shadow patterns. Greenery drapes from the upper seating area, adding a dynamic touch.
The material palette includes Kota stone, exposed concrete, and terracotta, contributing to a natural and pleasant atmosphere. Pastel blue windows seamlessly connect the interior with the outdoors, and the overall interior design follows a calming primary color scheme. The result is a sense of tranquility achieved through the thoughtful use of natural elements, earthy materials, soothing colors, and the seamless integration with the tropical surroundings.
