Bottle House

A casual remark about reusing bottles as a building material, caught the imagination of our client and everything else followed suit.The terrace of a Built -to-rent, residential structure became the site, where

he fancied a weekend retreat space.This he said could be just a room.

We conceived a jewel box like space, where each plan of the box when pulled out reveals a new function. This way the space can expand and shrink depending on the no. of users and activities that takes place in the house. While researching on the material options for such a space, we grew obsessed with the idea of extended material life.

Thousands of beer bottles, along with posts of eucalyptus trees (usually used for scaffolding) and a retired telephone booth were revived in this project.

The Bottles were stacked with mud mortar, similar to masonry construction in most places. It is also been placed in pre fabricated paper mache blocks in others.

The ability of the space to expand freely is counter characterized by the innumerable openings created by the bottles. The Filigreed walls draws one closer to the space while the sliding panels blur the familiar notion of in vs. out.
