Green Revelation

HYLA Architects as Architects

This detached house features 6 separate gardens and courtyards at various levels of the house. As it is surrounded by other houses with the rear neighbours being higher, privacy was a major concern. A courtyard is created at the back of the house to screen the house and at the same time let light and ventilation in. Landscape areas cascade upwards culminating in the rooftop pool. As the house is facing west, the front façade has a unique sliding aluminium screen that protects the house from the heat without obstructing the views.

 

On the ground floor, a deep terrace clad with timber provides shade to the house and at the same time a great spot to enjoy the beautiful garden and koi pond. Internally, the living room has a double volume space and so does the family room on the second level. This faces the courtyard with a grotto and is an oasis of peace and tranquility.wall to roof, an interplay of shadows dance atop the infinity pool below, overlooking a glass-less window of picturesque nature. On the roof, a gym, barbeque area and roof top pool enjoys views over the neighbourhood as well as its very own rooftop garden.
