Dr. Thomas Manjooran is passionate about Interior Designing and a huge fan of colonial style houses.
Complete with arches, a symmetrical facade and roof shingles, this house has striking colonial style exteriors. He has done away with a compound wall and gate. The light colors used are pleasing to the eye and goes well with the surroundings….
Owning an abode in Shobha City at Puzhakkal, Thrissur is really something! Just a walk away from the Mall, lake and park and coupled with the safety and security that a gated community offers. These are just some of the factors that influenced Dr.Thomas to build his nest here.
The house called ‘Manjoorans’ stands out in terms of design and structure from the rest of the villas in the community. As the house is set on a corner plot, the doctor-cum-interior designer was particular about making sure that all the four sides of the house were equally breathtaking. He modeled his house after a Spanish-style villa that he had come across a while ago.
Charm of Arches The arches found in colonial style houses are smaller than those seen in traditiona Kerala style homes. He had to literally train the mason involved in the work to make such arches for all the doors and windows. “To make sure that the colonial style is followed to the T, you need to focus on getting even the minute details right,” says Dr. Thomas.
