House of a Million Stars

Lighting a room seems easy enough: Plug in a lamp, flip a switch, and voilà! Job done. But there are some who take it several notches up. And that’s why you could call this the house of a million stars.

As dusk creeps in, the house lights up porch-to-terrace.

Hidden in a jam-packed busy street in Kodambakkam in Chennai is a house that stands out. As twilight falls, it takes over the spotlight. Light streams through the crevices in the lattice work on the façade of the house imitating the night sky. Step in and you’ll be greeted with absolute simplicity and class.

The interiors are in soft and neutral hues and enhance the elegant quotient of the house.

Gone are the days when you could open your windows for fresh air because of the increasing pollution levels. And so borrowing elements from ancient Tamil architecture a courtyard has been designed to bring the greenery inside the house and ensuring a free flow of natural light and air. It also gives an ethnic touch to an otherwise contemporary home.

Though there is sunlight streaming in, there is no heat building up as the glass used is filtered and the light is dispersed. The walls are plastered with beautiful wallpapers and claddings of light hues. The claddings on walls and along the staircase look like beautiful interior décor elements but they actually serve the purpose of keeping the walls dirt-free ensuring very little maintenance.

The house has been designed keeping it simple but definitely not compromising on the grandeur and luxury quotient. The dash of greenery is a switch from the traffic and hustle bustle. A perfect quiet holiday home in the heart of city.
