As architects, it is always nice to design large houses and villas. We’d usually think, the bigger the dwelling, the better. But as evidenced by WallB Architects, this compact Banglaorean home, proves that architects can make do with a small canvas. Especially when the client completely trusts you and lets you explore.
Anil Residence, our first little residential project is a testimony to what we call an “Urban Compact”. A 4 Bed, 4 Bath home on a 900Sq.ft urban plot. The living, dining, bed and kitchen in the ground open to a 100Sq.ft Walkout garden finished with wooden decking pads and a secured skylight. Almost all spaces align to this grid, vertically and horizontally and are in constant dialogue with the garden for light, wind and visual connect across the house. Louvered windows, slit skylights on concrete slabs, a cantilevered internal staircase define the aesthetics of the house as a play of light.
