• Minimalist Home with Graphically Sound Aesthetics | DIG Architects

    A minimalist home, Stacked Dwelling is a visually soothing piece of graphical architecture. Your eyes are harmoniously guided to move along the language of its offsetting context and keeps building up on curiosity. Impacting with a powerful visual hierarchy, the color block façade makes a fearlessly bold statement with contrasting subtle interiors. A rather modern and muted inspiration of Antoni Gaudi’s eccentricity. ~Yamini Vaswani

    The narrative of Stacked Dwelling, a minimalist home unfolds against the majestic backdrop of the Sahyadris. The brief was to design a 3-bed weekend home standing on a compact and linear 360-sqm plot.

    The challenge was to create a dwelling which had to be compact but also offer spaces for a variety of experiences — from personal solitude to social congregation.

    Stacked Dwelling isn’t an outcome of grand design strategies or lavish materiality. On the contrary, as the name suggests, the design is derived from ‘stacking of spaces and volumes’. This not only drives the organizational idea, but also responds to the challenges of context and program to create a perfect gateway to repose.

    The spatial strategy orchestrates a series of open, semi open and enclosed spaces that keep the experience from slipping into ennui. This is amplified by single and double-height volumes that create pockets for tête-à-têtes and congregation, solitude and socializing. Through all this, the connection to the outside remains steadfast, making the surrounding context and even the backdrop of the Sahyadris a part of internal experience.

    The formal strategy orchestrates the ‘stacking’ of two small houses with pocket terraces on a platform. The stacked concept is intensified by alternating the orientation of the house/pocket terrace and chromatic shifts on the elevation. While the dark grey grounds the form and the whiteness adds buoyancy, the yellow infuses vibrancy in the overall architectural expression.
