The Compact House Full Of Tranquility | SML Architects
Crafted from Shahabad stone and reclaimed Burma teak in combination with either cane, rope or fluted glass, this compact family house utilizes its limited area to create spaces of tranquility, encased from the bustling city around. The intimate scale of the spaces allows attentive focus on the details and surfaces.
Designed for a family of three, each room of this house adapts to its inhabitants in a way that is both versatile and intimate. Overlooking a dense garden, this family house opens its windows to the landscape below and the skyline of Mumbai down the hill beyond.
The social spaces are arranged to offer casual comfort for daily use and generous hospitality during gatherings with friends and family. Its furnished with a combination of bespoke handcrafted pieces and iconic mid-century pieces designed by masters like Hans Wegner and Pierre Jeanneret. Bedrooms are detailed with custom made furniture including floating beds with rope and teak frame headboard, wardrobe surfaces, door handles, and storage cabinets.
