THE BEE HOUSE
This house designed for a well known cement businessman from Surat, on a tight plot in a plush locality of Surat. The house is conceived as a series of spaces stacked bethween two prominent walls cladded in imported marble. The dining spaces is the heart of the house, as this triple height space binds the public spaces as well as the bedrooms across various floors. This triple height space with full glass brings in abundant natural light throughout the day and adds grandness. The unique and huge “Beehive” themed art installation by OBL/QUE gives the house an identity and presence in the context. Functionally, it also helps provide security, and cutting down the glare and providing visual privacy.
