Competition Brief:
The aim of the competition was to design a house based on a selected character.
Narrative:
The proposal of the Bungalow was conceptualized for a couple in their 50’s. Before the pandemic, they were living in their apartment in the city of Chennai. Up until their 50’s, they have experienced a hectic urban life. During the pandemic as they shift to work from home mode and a few years are left for their retirement so they decide to move to Pondicherry.The proposed design tries to incorporate spirituality in the spaces so as to enhance their post-urban city life. The planning is based on the traditional Indian courtyard house. The only difference being is that an open plan is adapted so as to have transparency between spaces. The design proposal has an RCC framed structure with filler slab – clay pot technology. The walls of the house are made from CSEB (Compressed Stabilized Earth Blocks). This ensures a tranquil sense in spaces. The scale of the spaces; light; exposed materials; open plan and interior elements are used to ensure a sense of spirituality throughout the spaces. The main intent is to make the user adapt to large spaces; tranquility and spirituality as opposed to small apartments so as to enhance the post retirement experience.
