Interior Design & Architectural Project Info
A young family who loves green and natural lights and ventilation, hence the overall design will surround this concept.
The nature of semi-detached houses will have open green spaces at the side and rear, however, in this scheme, we introduced pockets of green spaces at all 3 levels of the house, as well as the facade. At ground floor, a long landscape garden at the right side extends into the house, creating a small courtyard that can be seen from the foyer, living, dining and even while in the lift car. At first floor, a lifestyle deck with planters and creepers is created, and at the backside, planting area at the perimeter of RC slab. Whereas at the second floor, another small courtyard is established between the sleeping and working area, giving much needed breathing space to the house.
Raw materials are dominant in the house, with bare concrete floors and walls, and even some areas, on the ceiling. Raw elements can also be seen at the untreated black granite TV wall, concrete wet kitchen island with rebar legs, red bricked drying area and steel meshed screens. All these may seem bare and cold, but with the introduction of pockets of green, and some solid timber and rattan finishes, the overall mood is balanced and cosy.
