The Scaffold House is a low-cost renovation project based in Bangalore, in which the original load bearing building had three apartments has been converted into two duplex houses. The original building was built on a square 60'x60' corner site by the clients, as a retirement home. It contained their three bedrooms home on the first floor, along with two rental units (one two bedroom apartment and a single bedroom apartment) on the ground floor.
The format of the house came into question once their son moved to Bangalore. A reconsolidation of the house was needed. The idea of the Scaffold house stems from a pragmatic approach towards renovation, clarifying the understanding of the 'new' in context to the 'old'.
Structure, site and budget concerns needed a bold intervention which changed the project from a finicky renovation to one of a motivated architectural intervention in that of making a family house. A square of 20'x20' in the centre of the building was broken down carefully becomingthe central core for this intervention. This space became the volume catalyzing the restructuring process. Since periphery of the building had most of the existing functions, they were mainly retained with very limited intervention.
