Design Award

This house design shows a high degree of spatial and functional innovation in the use of simple architectural elements. The ramp that wraps around the house, especially, stands out as a strong architectural device with great effect. It negotiates the intermittent space and creates delightful moments of engagement with the interior as well as the exterior, without compromising the nominal functions of a house.

It is memorable and delightful architecture made with simple materials and capitalising on many mundane workings of architectural details. There is also a skill in design balance: resolving the double circulation created by the use of both ramp and staircase.
