Round houses – embracing curves

Obviously, one of the distinctive features of round houses is their curved structure. The fluid nature of curves has a profound impact on our mental state. Designing the interior of an MCH round home, or any home for that matter, should  support mental health. Some facets of design that create a serene and uplifting environment include:

a) Natural light and open spaces: Round homes often feature large windows, allowing abundant natural light to flood the space. Sunlight is a natural mood booster, promoting the production of serotonin, a hormone associated with happiness. Open spaces within the home enhance the flow of energy. They reduce feelings of confinement and promoting a sense of freedom.

b) Soft colours and organic materials: Opt for soft and soothing colours that promote tranquility. Choose earthy tones or pastel shades. Incorporate organic materials like wood, bamboo, or natural fibres. These materials promote a connection with nature, known to have a calming effect on the mind.

c) A floor plan that flows: A clean, flowing layout encourages movement and fosters a feeling of harmony within the space.

Sustainable living

At MCH, we believe in harmonizing our living spaces with the environment. Our commitment to sustainability is evident in every round home we build. This includes:

a) Green building materials: We prioritize the use of sustainable, non-toxic, and locally sourced materials. From BC lumber to energy-efficient insulation, we minimize our environmental impact while ensuring a healthy indoor environment.

b) Energy efficiency: Our round homes are designed with energy efficiency in mind. We employ the latest technologies to ensure a healthier, more durable building that incurs a lower environmental impact. With features such as natural lighting, energy-efficient windows and doors, optimal insulation, and efficient heating and cooling systems, we reduce energy consumption and lower our carbon footprint.

c) Minimal waste: Our innovative and precise Off-Site Manufacture (OSM) prefab round house construction significantly minimizes waste generation during the construction process. Additionally, our designs incorporate durable and long-lasting materials, reducing the need for frequent replacements and further reducing waste.

A harmonious haven for holistic health

Living in a round home provides numerous benefits for all-round health and wellness. Beyond the mental health advantages, the unique design of round homes supports holistic well-being in various ways:

a) Improved air circulation and energy flow: The circular shape facilitates better air circulation and energy flow within the home. This promotes a healthier and more comfortable indoor environment.

b) Enhanced sleep quality: Round walls create a nurturing sleep environment by minimizing the harsh angles and promoting a sense of security. This, in turn, improves sleep quality, allowing for better rest and rejuvenation.

c) Sustainable living: We build our round homes using eco-friendly materials and technologies and sustainable building practices. By choosing a round home, you contribute to a healthier planet and promote healthy and sustainable living.

The timeless appeal of round house living

The concept of round living is not a new phenomenon. Throughout history, humans have been instinctively drawn to the circular form, recognizing its inherent connection to nature and its harmonious qualities. Here’s a glimpse into the history of round home building and why it continues to captivate us:

a) Ancient wisdom: Round dwellings have been a part of human civilization for centuries. From the yurts of Central Asia to the huts of indigenous cultures worldwide, round homes have been embraced for their practicality, adaptability, and spiritual significance. These structures symbolize a connection to the Earth and its cyclical nature.

b) Natural harmony: Round living aligns with the organic patterns found in nature, from the gentle curves of seashells to the orbits of celestial bodies. Humans have long recognized the inherent beauty and balance of these natural forms and sought to replicate them in their living spaces.

c) Symbolism and energy flow: Many ancient cultures believed that round homes enhanced the flow of energy, creating a harmonious environment. The circular shape symbolized unity, wholeness, and a sense of oneness with the surrounding world.

By embracing round living in our homes, we tap into this timeless wisdom. We create spaces that not only benefit mental health but also honour the rich history of human connection to the natural world.

The psychological impact of round spaces

Living in a round home offers a multitude of psychological benefits that contribute to overall mental health and well-being. The rounded shape of these homes has a profound impact on our subconscious mind, evoking feelings of calmness, harmony, and balance. Here’s how round homes support our mental health:

a) Reducing stress and anxiety: The absence of sharp corners and straight lines in round homes creates a sense of safety and security, reducing stress and anxiety. The organic flow of space promotes relaxation, allowing occupants to unwind and find solace within their home.

b) Enhancing creativity and focus: The circular design encourages the smooth flow of energy, stimulating creativity and enhancing focus. With no dead ends or obstructive corners, round homes foster a sense of exploration and promote a free-flowing thought process.

c) Encouraging social connection: Round homes foster a sense of togetherness, as there are no isolated corners or secluded areas. The absence of physical barriers encourages social interaction, improving relationships and promoting a sense of community and connection.

Living in a round home is more than just a unique architectural choice; it is a lifestyle that supports mental health, fosters well-being, and promotes a harmonious living environment. Embrace the curves, let the energy flow, and experience the extraordinary benefits of living in a Mandala Custom Round Prefab Home.
