Light and Shadows

This good class bungalow in the Chancery Road area is an exercise in contrasts. A two-storey finely louvred box housing the formal living and dining spaces and the master bedroom ensemble floats above the swimming pool and reflective pond. The fine detailing of the external louvres creates a powerful interplay of light and shadow both in the day as well as at night. It also contrasts with the solid mass of the secondary wing which houses the informal living spaces and four bedrooms on the second storey. These two blocks are connected via a two-storey stairwell and an interesting home lift, which extends down into the basement parking below.
