Inspired by the Robbie House designed by the famous architect Frank Llyod Wright, a residential unit, for a family in the traditional town of Tokha was designed with modern design approach and a traditional subordinate. The design was formulated to entertain the client’s requirement of a bungalow with concept of segregating private and public spaces but at the same time maintaining an idea of connectivity as well as subtle discrepancy between all the created spaces, both internally and externally.

With an extravagant outdoor garden, the sheltered space has been proposed at the far south west corner of the site in order to house a parking and servant quarter at the north east. The central void extends from ground floor to top floor establishing a visual connection between all floors while lighting the interior with abundant light coming in from the skylight present on the slope roof that extends over the family room on the First floor.
