The parcel is located at the end corner of the block and adjacent to the public park, which is seen as a directing point to the space planning concept. The tropical climatic also taken as a main consideration to drive the architectural geometry concept, along with the material chosen.

ARCHITECTURE
The space itself tries to elaborate the continuity of walking experience from the very first entrance through the fence and to the end of the guest living room. Rather than organize the space layout in conventional way, TWS tried to swap the zoning of semi private family room from the rear part to the front corner area of the land parcel, and elevated it 3 meters above the street level.

By doing so, architects were able to ‘borrow’ the public park view from this family room, rather than conventional small courtyard at the back of the land. Consequently the house has a ramping pedestrian way from the main entrance through the over flow swimming pool to the guest living room at the back part of the land, createing a walking experience for the visitor.

The building envelope itself using the floor to ceiling glass skin, in order to maximize surrounding view, and through the sliding folding glass door system, make the family room as flexible as ‘tropical’ terrace, adjacent to ‘infinity’ swimming pool.

Using the 3.5 meter span of metal louver canopy, the master bedroom at second floor was covered from the afternoon sunlight, without sacrificing the ‘generous’ view to the adjacent public park from inside.

INTERIOR
Inside the modern tropical asian architecture style of the building, TWS tried to put a ‘traditional’ interior element, like semi transparent wall partition in the family room, to soften the atmosphere. A natural piece of natural wood was used for the dining table to give a warm feeling to this area as a ‘main heart’ of this residence.

In master bathroom, TWS tried to elaborate the ‘gallery’ concept, with the rectilinear space arrangement, which maximized the natural daylight through the gap between the room with the perimeter wall. The color and material palette using the earth, creamy color contrast with dark, aged and rustic wood appearance.
