BALAKRISHNANS RESIDENCE, KUMARAPALAYAM, Residential-Single family dwelling

BALAKRISHNANS RESIDENCE, KUMARAPALAYAM Mr.Balakrishnan, Mrs.Nandhini and their daughter a family of three, decided to design a exquisite home for their elderly parents in Kumarapalayam a small town near Bhavani. They wanted the house to be a beautiful residing spot for their parents, it should also serve as a wonderful vacation place when they visit from Muscat. They have lots of cousins and relatives around the same town, so their concentration is more on family space than formal living. Different types of age groups, elderly people who like to converse with Mr.Balakrishnans parents, mid age group members who tend to be of the same age group as Mr.Balakrishnan and Mrs.Nandhini, Young teens like their daughter and her cousins. The house should serve as a comfortable space for all such age groups. Their main demand was to ensure security since elderly families only lived around. So the house was well secured by various courtyards. The external courtyards were covered by pergolas. They are also nature loving people but they didnt want much greenery inside the house for easy maintenance, so external space around the house was beautifully landscaped by Mr.Jeyakumar landscape architect. The front part has an entry pavilion and a small lily pond where his parents could have a walk, sit and relax briefly. Similarly the car parking area is beautifully done so as to accommodate social gatherings. The space will act as a social setting were men would like to sit and have nice conversations. A beautiful garden in the front were children can play. Ground floor contains two bedrooms. The house also serves for Mr.Balakrishnans younger sister who visits from Salem during family gatherings, and for her children who can have great vacations at their grandparents house. Mr.Balakrishnans brother in law can also spend remarkable time with his friends in thinnai, courtyard and other spaces which retains privacy. The family room is also visually connected to Mr.Balakrishnans sister room. Her room has a courtyard inside the toilet which imparts natural light.
