Vertical Court in Greenbank Park, Singapore by HYLA Architects

Wednesday, February 11th, 2015

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.

Article source: sa.ne studio

This project is consisted of three major volumes. Two of them are forming an “L” shape plan on the ground floor, and the other one sits on top of them at a 30 degrees angle.
The reason for creating such a composition, was to maintain visibility to the most beautiful views the house could have, and at the same provide appropriate orientation for shading for an improved thermal performance.
