In this context, we focus on slotting in between the ‘Guest-Commercial’ & ‘House-Residential’. It will give guests a comfortable atmosphere like a house within residential blocks while taking the advantage of locating near the main commercial road and the station.

Due to the required maximum floor area with 8 rooms, design aims to articulate the mass by splitting into two for creating a slot as a corridor space & breaking down the scale, by sliding two volumes for front yard working as a filter from the road while backyard giving a breathing space with neighbors, and by slotting internal space for providing guests with a good view to outside, good daylight across the rooms and cross ventilation.

Section 2

Pitched Roof volume with a recessed balcony is projected out towards the road to be recognizable for guests. JEJE guesthouse is not overwhelmed, but in a way that reveals itself with a simple and calm look, it is slotting in the existing environment.
