Mandala Custom Homes Home Owner Guide

Your sanctuary awaits! Discover the allure of living in harmony with nature in a prefab round home – innovative design that connects seamlessly with the outdoors.

In a world that seems to be moving faster than ever, finding solace in nature is just that much more cherished. As urban landscapes expand, even in smaller towns and cities, the yearning for a stronger connection to the outdoors intensifies.

With our innovative prefab round home designs, Mandala Custom Homes (MCH) weaves together seamlessly architecture and nature. With every home we build, we help create a haven that brings the outdoors in.

Even if you don’t live in a prefab round home, there are ingenious strategies you can employ to blur the boundaries between indoor and outdoor spaces. Here are a few ideas to help you forge a more profound connection with nature, even indoors.

The harmony of circular design: a gateway to nature

At the heart of the MCH prefab round home ethos lies the circular design principle. Inspired by the infinite cycles of nature, our homes are built with intention. From planning to completion, we aim to foster a harmonious relationship between MCH homeowners and their surroundings.

The circular shape, often associated with unity and balance, serves as a gentle invitation to embrace the natural world. By erasing the harsh corners of conventional architecture, we create a sense of flow, where inhabitants are effortlessly guided from one space to another, much like a journey through the great outdoors.

Windows – portals to the natural world

There is nothing like windows to frame picturesque views of the surrounding landscape. Windows, large or small, not only provide vital natural light but also transform the outdoors into a living work of art. Whether nestled in a serene forest, perched atop a coastal cliff, or fixed in an urban landscape, windows provide a canvas through which the beauty of nature can be observed and admired.

If you are fortunate to have a clever positioning of windows, as we do in our MCH prefab round home designs, they can also allow for strategic cross-ventilation and refreshing air circulation. Fresh air enhances the indoor air quality and evokes a sensation of being gently caressed by the outdoors.

Indoor gardens and biophilia: nature’s embrace inside

Originating from the Greek, philia, or ‘love of’, biophilia means a love of life or living things. Imprinted on our DNA, we humans have a deeply engrained and intuitive love of nature.

Bringing plant life into your home satisfies this innate need for contact with nature indoors. Indoor gardens serve as a captivating way to experience nature’s beauty within the confines of any home, no matter the size or shape. When you integrate carefully curated plant life, you create a microcosm of the natural world indoors. An indoor garden, or even a collection of your favourite house plants, are a year-round reminder of lush landscapes beyond the walls.

The gentle rustle of leaves, the play of light on swaying branches, and the soothing scent of blooming flowers infuse the space with a sense of tranquility that only nature can provide.

Round accessories

Circles represent grace. Including round in your home brings a sense of warmth and comfort, some even argue, love and sensuality. Circular movement alludes to energy and power – unity, harmony, and the infinite. A circle represents protection – they hold what’s within and help to keep things out. Circles are safety… but they’re also connection and, ultimately, perfection.

If you find your experience within your harm one that is too “hard”, chances are including more ‘round-ness’ would help to soften the edges. Adding a few circular shaped objects is a great idea! Beyond building a prefab round home,  there are various ways you can incorporate the harmonious energy of circles into a room.

Using round light fixtures, such as a round shade or pendant, brings the curved shape into focus, magnifying its effect. Mirrors reflect light and are a powerful design element, regardless. A round mirror, however, provides a uniquely holistic essence to the space. We often look to textiles to help bring warmth and comfort to a room. Choose materials with circular shapes such as a pouf and you amplify the power of round in the space. Use a variety of smaller round or circular accessories around the room in close proximity to each other. The items will mirror one another’s shape and effectively spread a comforting and holistic feeling around the room.

Natural materials in a prefab round home: crafting a connection

To reinforce the union between indoors and the out, MCH employs natural materials that mimic the elements of the surrounding environment. We can seamlessly integrate wood, stone, and other organic materials into the architecture to provide a tactile connection to the earth. Over time, these materials age gracefully, further blurring the line between what is man-made and what is naturally occurring. The sense of grounding that results from these materials enhances the overall sense of well-being within the home.

You can achieve this sense of nature in any home. Consider the furnishings, accessories, and accents you use. Choose items derived from nature – wood, stone, ceramics, and naturally-derived textiles. Replace contractor-grade mouldings and baseboards with wood to warm up your space and further enhance your view of the surroundings.

MCH prefab round homes have worked hard to redefine the way we experience our living spaces – we know how important it is! Through thoughtful circular design, panoramic windows, and incorporating natural materials, our homes transcend the boundaries of traditional architecture.

We want every home to inspire its residents to slow down. Savour the beauty of nature and to find a sense of belonging within the world around us. We are navigating an increasingly fast-paced world. Prefab round home design and specific design touches help us to slow down and experience the embrace of nature. Moreover, they help to create a sanctuary where we live. Your home should be a place where there is harmony between the outdoors and indoors.

Bringing nature indoors provides that vital reminder of the tranquility possible when we connect with the world beyond your walls.
