Aavarna , the Sanskrit denotation of the word Shapes, is an architectural vision to this single dwelling bungalow. This abode is a simple longitude rectangle in the narrow plot size of 24’ x 56’. Located in a small town named Shania near Surat, this adobe is what we call “Aavrana”. The plot is an elongated rectangular space which came with its challenges and benefits.
According to the plot placement, the sides are considered into having a common wall which restricts us from providing any ventilation or light source from the sides, which results the front balcony and some interior handles.
The space designing was made convenient by seggregating the space requirements and planning out accordingly.

The exterior of the home is characterised by grey and glass. The gate at left at the entrance demarcates the enclosed car park from the road beyond. “The home is likely to be obstructed by neighbouring properties in the future, restricting ventilation and lighting.
