House in arboretum
The house is recreated with more green on its skin and cozy from its heart. The house was built inside a community housing compound with typical planning and structure of its own.
It took almost 16 months to remake the house as now. The enthusiasm behind upbringing and inviting the plants and green space defines the name 'house in Arboretum' well.
像現在這樣重新裝修房子花了將近 16 個月的時間。 培育和移植植物和綠色空間，背後的熱情適切地定義了“植物園中的房子”這個名字。
The house has a normal facade that conveys the quality of the climate and even resists to more heat. It has an open plan where all the semiprivate spaces are connected to each other and make the circulation easy even for a newcomer.
At present, its a home rather than a house were all the plants and living beings breathe along with the family.
This residence settled in a gated residential community of Calicut, underwent a redesigning exercise, to break the basic structural design of the home that earlier had a sloping roof feature, following the standard design of other homes in the community.
The 16 months redesigning process turns out the look and feel of the house into an organic structure that celebrates the presence of nature.
