This house is located in 6 Ramsgate Road, Singapore . The site area is 1200 sqm with 855 sqm built-in area. Designed by Wallflower Architects, ‘The client’s desire for the hometo have a perception of substantial private space has resulted in the development of a spatial program that internalizes spaces such as pools and gardens normally regarded as external to the envelope of the house. By zoning spaces such as the bedrooms and servants’ quarters on alternative levels, i.e. 2nd story and basement levels, the ground plane is freed from walls that would have been required if public and private programs were interlaced on the same plane.
The environmental transparencies at ground level and between courtyards are important in passively cooling the house. All the courtyards have differing material finishes and therefore differing heat gain and latency (water, grass, water, granite).
