MALABAR
Isle of Wight

PDF Project Profile

Malabar House, located in Ryde on the Isle of Wight, adds to the rich history of the island’s villa homes. The architectural language of the house was developed as an intersecting assembly of translucent glass and solid white volumes that transform throughout the day as light passes through the building skin. Internally, the main white box living accommodation is linked by a sequence of gallery like spaces; open and flowing between living, dining, entertaining and cooking zones. These spaces emphasise functionality with a continuous connection between outside and inside, all designed to maximise the far reaching views of the Solent.

Leading up generous and processional steps, the entry and circulation void is housed in a distinct vertical glass panelled façade. Internally, open plan living spaces, associated amenities and a small dark snug room are complimented by four well sized bedrooms. At the upper most level a sanctuary for contemplation and tranquillity commands spectacular views in every direction. The secluded gardens with stunning blossom trees contribute significantly to the contemporary villa; a home which is hoped will transcend time.
