In this example, an all-white exterior accentuates the building’s sleek modern look.

All white This actor’s home in Hyderabad is painted in stark white, which emphasises its futuristic vibe. The spartan uniformity of white is relieved by a sliver of glass window – dark and reflecting the colours of the trees and sky – and a vast expanse of manicured lawn – a bright, fresh green that perfectly balances the white. All three elements combine to look cool in a warm-weather city.Looking for ideas for exterior wall cladding?
Houzz at a GlanceWho lives here: Allu Arjun and his wife Sneha ReddyLocation: Hyderabad, IndiaSize: 8,000 square feet (743.2 square metres) home on a two acre plot (8093.7 square metre)Architectural designer: Aamir Sharma of Aamir & Hameeda AssociatesThat’s interesting: The rectangular box design of this holiday home.Photos: Sameer ChawdaThe site is located on the outskirts of Hyderabad, where strict building regulations come into play. “The plot is situated in a zone that allows only about 20 per cent of the land to be constructed. I thus wanted to create a structure that would stand out amidst all the open green farmland,” explains Sharma. A minimalist style and build offer a designer little room for errors as they can be easily exposed. Sharma says that the clean and simplistic nature of the design made this one of his most challenging projects. He says, “With this house there was no scope for cover-ups and hence I had to be sure of what I was doing before I even broke ground.”
