Additional information about this Bungalow

Bungalow Schossig

 

A fitting retirement bungalow for two that's perfect from every angle.

 
A triangular plot of land may not seem like a promising starting point for the ideal retirement bungalow, but with creative architecture, that's exactly what Bungalow Schossig achieves. The arrow-shape design cleverly uses the corner plot to its advantage, with two dynamic wings converging at an acute angle, giving privacy to a snug, sun blessed terrace, leading to the garden. (Because no retirement home would be complete without outside space to potter in.) Bungalow Schossig optimises the land's natural slope to create an outdoor paradise, split over different levels, and broken up with rough-hewn stones, lush foliage, and colourful perennials. On warm summer evenings, the garden resounds to the clack-clack of hardwood balls, as residents gather for a game or three of bocce on the neatly integrated bocce court. The bungalow's natural wood façade with filigree horizontal battens, framed by a dark tin roof and angular, dark-coated downpipes made of titanium zinc, blends harmoniously into the environment. And with the environment in mind, a carport with a charging station for an e-car completes the scene. Moving inside, the main entrance and cloakroom are located in the 'arrow tip', along with an office with two workstations. The open plan kitchen, living and dining rooms occupy one entire wing. Panorama windows provide plenty of light and floor-to-ceiling French doors mean the patio is just a step away. The second wing hosts the utility rooms, and the master bedroom, with includes a prominently placed free standing bath, separate from the bathroom. With no stairs and an emphasis on easy access, Bungalow Schossig is all about bringing maximum comfort and carefree living to those retirement years. Creativity, imagination, and craftsmanship helped turn this triangular plot into an idyllic corner of the world for two.
