JP Residence a.ka. The Element House

Masked by a deceptively reticent street facade, the large volume of this house rises four floor from its basement guest rooms to a study and library tucked beneath the steeply pitched roof of the attic. The volume was initially considered as a 9x9 set of cubes within a larger cube, whose components could be extracted in order to create internal voids. The resultant ‘parti‘ determined the placement of a central water-filled courtyard enclosed by a C-shaped block with variegated – open and closed – facade treatments on each floor. The ground floor is transparent, open to the landscape and the swimming pool, but the upper floors are inwardly orientated, looking over the courtyard through glazed corridors and screened windows.


The entire house could be constrcuted as a hermitric vertical compound for an extended family, with private rooms stacked above and below a communal living and entertainment zone. The choice of materials and textures throughout the interior, notably the dark-stained timber, contrive an exotic ambience, which is reiterated by the ‘creased‘ hardwood elevation facing the street.
