Honourable Mention

This single storey house certainly tests the limits and pushes out new ideas of landed residential design. The unique undulating metal roof is a new roof typology for the tropics because it channels rain into the numerous courtyards.

The contrast between the strict structural grid to support roof and the ambiguous open plan ground level was well handled by the architect. In terms of programme, there is a clear separation between the public and private spaces.

The plan layout consists of a large square which houses the social and communal spaces, while a smaller square is placed at the rear for the living quarters and bedrooms.
