Calicut Residence by Artystry

Designed by Nahal Ahammed and Anas Mohammed of the firm Artystry, this 2770 sq ft chic Calicut residence holds all the promise of a quiet living, away from the bustling city. The client was looking for a minimal, contemporary dwelling that complements its topography. The design team designed the spaces accordingly. The linear arrangement of various zones inside the house ensures continuous airflow and ample sunlight in every room. The design team did the interiors in soft wooden tones of plywood, mica, veneers, and wood reapers to complement the client’s personality. The living room features a cozy black sofa facing the television, which rests upon a stylish wooden console. Minimal accents and decor pieces are placed to keep the area clutter-free.


The dining room is the center of attraction of the house. It combines the use of industrial elements and materials, which create an impressive visual. With the striking industrial concept light fixture, space is balanced with textured wallpaper, Italian marble flooring, and a contemporary six-seater custom dining area. The sleek and contemporary kitchen includes plywood and mica-laminate cabinets and marble backsplash tiles.


The staircase is built with metals sheet and solid wood to complement the dining space. Upstairs, the spatial corridor is brought to life by the charming hanging industrial lighting bolted against a wooden base, creating a dramatic visual interest. 


The master bedroom has a solid wooden bed with attached side tables and is offset by the soft, textural rug at its base. Juxtaposing the subtle theme is a textured deep-hued wallpaper that adds more depth and dimension to the room. The guest bedroom has a green textured wallpaper with a wooden slatted headboard and attached mirror. Following the minimal-industrial theme from downstairs is a pendant lighting that hangs from the ceiling.
