ON A HIGH

This single-storey residence breaks away from the usual linear architectural form to give its owners a rare structure that not only ensures privacy but also allows them to enjoy the surrounding greenery.

A bungalow’s structure plays a significant role in creating a strong identity. Generally, architects and designers like to keep the structures clean and straight-lined, especially when it comes to single-storey homes. Very rarely do we see a structure that breaks the usual norms and exhibits an interesting amalgamation of forms, shapes and patterns.

However, this home by architect Arpan Shah of Modo Designs does exactly that. It not

elegant on the Olympic stage, ready for the starters gun and the worlds cameras; but in architecture terms, the structure is far more method actor than glittering celebrity, as I found out talking to Mike Taylor, who led the design team for Hopkins Architects.

For rather than directing focus to the brief, glamorous moments in the spotlight, the team initiated the design process by working ‘from the inside out’ – like a silkworm making its cocoon – creating a streamlined sustainable container that will fulfl its function to minimalist perfection, and continue to inspire long after the cameras have moved on.
