Uncluttered Composition Of Stacked Forms For A Sculptural Family Haven | Rheaa Estudio

“Ever come across a space that is elemental and humbling simultaneously? The bridge house is captivating with mature and artistic detailing and corners. The generous openings and transparent surfaces enhance the interiors. The play of levels creates an interesting stacked formation with a lush landscape around it.”- Nishal Sevak(Co-Editor)

The Bridge house is an elegant private residence located in the heart of the city of Trivandrum. Embracing the cityscape while retaining the privacy was a primary concern of the client and the project brief. Our response was to design an uncluttered composition of stacked forms for a sculptural family haven which is interlinked and cut open to expose the interior spaces, filled with daylight, plants and views to overlook the courtyards.
