Architecture of a home becomes a notion of permanence sought. Yet, with a certain freedom of choices such as, the weight of undeniable responsibilities and a want for them- all these of course, as conscious and a state of effortless being helped shape it. RH23 is a reaction to the layers created by one individual for the responsibilities [taken up], hence, reactions in the physical form are around the VORTEX polarised, controlled, and magnetised.
From the outside start the very first layer of the building experience- a sense of PRESENCE. A massive presence created by the 6 sentry-like thick walls visible from the street. An engagement is established with the visitor/passerby here.
The state of being created is dynamic but outwardly looks static and stable! A paradox? The art style that influenced the work of this architecture also seems static to the untrained eye- but is it? Constructivist style of both thought and art translated for design and to create the right tectonics was sought as it and the rest has the tendency to bring out the Person’s strength and the weight carried to their best capacities.
These planes are constructed in an orthographic manner to create the public, semi-private/public, to private spaces of the house- both transversely and longitudinally. In a manner, the connections between these start from the very outside-to the in-between- to the inside- to the inner most, are in series narrowing down at every stage.
The spatial character in the volumes play a different significance altogether; they start with vast openness of the outside- to a controlled open of the in-between- to an expected openness- to a double heighted volume – to a metaphorical isolation for oneself.
Built of PRECAST concrete technology the aesthetics are annotated by volumes, geometry and concrete. It stands bare and honest. Every comfort imaginable from home automation to smart lighting to motorized blinds to drain-vac this house has it all can be controlled through an app on the mobile phone.
