Vertical Court in Greenbank Park, Singapore by HYLA Architects

 
February 11th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: HYLA Architects

A courtyard on two levels sits in the centre of this semi-detached house. On the first level, a frangipani tree sits in the middle of a pond, framed by a timber clad box. The double volume living room and the dining room wraps around this courtyard. The second storey level of the courtyard lies over the dining area and in front of the master bedroom. The full height glass facade facing the courtyard is screened by interlocking vertical and horizontal timber members. The courtyard offers the house a lot of privacy as well as letting in light into the cetnre of the house. It also acts as a buffer against noise from a major road a distance away.
