The interior architects at Built Building Space bring you a traditional, charming yet contemporary home which is owned by a teaching couple who loves books. Modern and young Indian couples will surely fall in love with this simple yet elegant home which makes lavish use of wood and white elements to create a warm, spacious and bright atmosphere. Glass has not only been used for the exterior windows, but it forms the sliding or folding panels between the various interior spaces. This ensures that light flows freely from one room to another and there is a feeling of visual openness. Smart and chic inbuilt shelves appear in many places to house the countless books this couple owns. Bright artificial lighting and neat furniture pieces contribute to the home’s appeal as well.
White walls and traditional sloping roofs make this house charming as well as endearing. Large glass windows allow the interior lights to shine through and help the house shine like a jewel in the dark. A small wooden deck makes for a cosy entrance.
Shaded with transparent glass set in a wooden frame, this small patio in the backyard is perfect for sunbathing or unwinding after a hard day. The iron grilles of the door and windows add personality to the spot.

Glossy white and grey cabinets make the kitchen an elegant and functional space, while the hexagonal tiles on the floor stunningly separate it from the dining. The gleaming backsplash, trendy appliances and a cosy wooden breakfast nook make this kitchen truly special.
This image clearly shows the importance the owners attach with glass and wood. Wood floods the home with warmth and glass demarcates various areas with elegance. Note how the several reading nooks in this residence are naturally lit and they become one big space when the sliding doors are open. When some privacy or quiet is required, you can simply close the doors without visually disconnecting the spaces.
Glass windows and a sliding glass door separate the bedroom from the rest of the house. Wooden elements add warmth to the whiteness of the room, while a large window brings in tons of sunlight.
