On Jasmit Rangr’s Residential Jewel Boxes In Nature
With 90+ categories and 300+ jurors, the Architizer A+Awards is the world’s definitive architectural awards program. We are pleased to showcase some of the 100+ winners. In partnership with Cadillac, this series of profiles offers an exclusive look at several firms that push the boundaries of the profession and truly dare greatly.
Small though his practice may be, Jasmit Rangr has established himself as a vacation home specialist, striking a perfect balance between opacity and transparency when it comes to porosity and privacy in nature. Rangr Studio won the 2015 A+Awards, Popular Choice, for the Residential: Private House (L 3000-5000 sq ft) Category with Modern Cabin. It’s easy to see its broad appeal, expressing comfort, shelter, and serenity in a solid (but not heavy) structure, at once rustic and modern, warm and summery.
It turns out that the Modern Cabin is just the latest example of how Rangr successfully negotiates both his clients’ needs and architectural precision both inside and outside the home. The opaque forms maximize privacy for residents even as they make jewel boxes to experience the surrounding nature from the inside.
