Villa Glory – Residential Architecture & Interior | Silpi Architects | Idduki, Kerala
Nestled into the verdant mountains in Idukki, perched over 53 cents of land overlooking the Malankara reservoir, the “Villa Glory” is a slice of paradise in disguise tucked into these gently sloping terrains. The 5250 sq. ft villa is an elegant manifestation of the client’s vision for a cozy, subtle yet spacious and opulent abode.
The whole house sneaks in a subtle charm caressed with a verdant hue. The thought to bring in nature, eliminating the inner clutter by avoiding the unwanted need for heavily ornamented interiors, helped us derive the neutral interior palette. In mere words, the idea was to keep it simple, avoiding chaos.
Though the palette is kept very light, the rust-coloured central wall against the pale tones dictates the atmosphere of the living room. The furniture is kept functional and minimalistic. The natural light and fresh breeze that are swept in through the large sliding windows equally reign the warmth offered within the room. Placed throughout the house, these openings are designed to be larger, with glazed sliding doors to bring in ambient light, ample air, and the picturesque landscape.
Sprung out on multiple levels, the 5-bedroom house is designed with an array of staircases connecting each of them. Placed against an entrancing backdrop, the network of steel fabricated staircases explicitly engages with the double- height void bringing in an air of grandeur to the room.
Each bedroom has been designed with minimal furniture and large sliding windows. The master bedroom opens out into a balcony with a view to the pool beneath and a verdant landscape outside. The wide openings running throughout the length of the wall keeps the rooms well-lit and ventilated.
