Bridge house in Mango Farms

House with Bridge in mango farm | Kinny soni and Ujjval Panchal.Mango trees were the most important elements of this site when we started thinking about designing this house. An experience of being under the large foliage of mango trees was our inspiration. We wanted to create private living spaces without compromising the feeling of being under the foliage of mango trees.

House with Bridge in mango farm is a private residence of Mr. Jain in Bhopal-India. As the name suggest this house is built around several large 50 years old mango trees. The house consists of two major blocks connected through passages. One accommodates private areas such as living room, bedrooms, kitchen & dining – where the other accommodates formal seating, guest room, studio, gym and swimming pool.


This house plan is conceived as a solid wall envelope from outside giving privacy to the house. Inside this envelope, all the spaces are designed as pavilions facing trees, where inside becomes outside and vice versa. We used large glasses as transparent walls to enclose spaces, without compromising the experience of being under the trees.






Tall openings, flat ceilings, and continuous floor levels further blur the boundaries of inside and outside. Various passages, staircases, and terraces at different floor levels create new vistas and interesting movements around the mango trees.
