A country house is defined as a home built on the outskirts of a city or in the country side. In olden days, these were modest housing arrangements to meet the basic needs of a working class family residing in the countryside, but over the period of time , it started being associated with temporary residence to spend a few days away from the hustle and bustle of the cities. A country house is an alternative to urban housing and equipped with modern services and facilities.
In todays fast paced, scattered, multi tasking culture, the open floor plan embodies what has become the norm of life. The family can be conducting different activities but still be physically together in the same space, the father can be cooking dinner, the son can be playing with his trains, and the mother can be paying the bills all at the same time and in the same room.
