The courtyard house is located in a 3-storey mixed-landed residential district, on the eastern part of Singapore. Built for a multi-generational family who seeks a communal way of living but wanted a space that are private, screened from the prying eyes of surrounding neighbors. While inspired by the Si He Yuan courtyard house, the project seeks to readapt the vernacular typology found in the northern regions of China, to a detached house typology in an urbanized tropical context.

The public and private realms are layered in a spatial procession from the street. Circulation within the house circumambulate the courtyard on all floors. Save this picture!© Albert LimThe main spaces are organized around this central, outdoor atrium   where a lap pool runs parallel to one edge. The ground floor is finished entirely in hone travertine without any drops to blur the boundaries between indoor and outdoor, unifying the entire ground floor as a singular, seamless, communal space. The perforated concrete wall allows for air-flow and glimpses of the garden beyond but shields the western sun and its adjacent neighbors.Save this picture!© Albert LimThe house expresses the relationship between periphery and core. Similar to the traditional courtyard typology, the inner core is a private, secure and well-ventilated outdoor space intended as an extension of the family space. While the periphery is surrounded in dense tropical foliage, the courtyard is tranquil and contemplative. Through a series of spatial appendixes of bridges, wall perforations, pool extensions, shower stalls, stairs and bay windows that penetrate the two side walls that bound the inner sanctum, the residents gets to experience the tropical garden on the periphery.Save this picture!First Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessBalmain House / Fox JohnstonSelected ProjectsWinner Announced for Flinders Street StationArchitecture News Share Houses Architects: Formwerkz Architects Photographs CopyAbout this officeFormwerkz ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesSingaporePublished on August 09, 2013Cite: “The Courtyard House / Formwerkz Architects” 09 Aug 2013.

A series of cascading courts between the house and the party wall forms the basis by which this semi- detached house is organized. From the outside one is scarcely able to see these courtyards due to the screeining and deep shadows. The courtyards are covered with a glass roof and timber pergola, which makes them pretty much all weather spaces. Indeed they are open at the ends and that makes it a very breezy space and house which is ideal for our hot tropical climate.Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellSave this picture!© Derek SwalwellThe exterior elevations have an almost Japanese simplicity with the vertical timber screens and off form concrete walls. The timber screens gives the upper level bedrooms privacy from the road. At the entrance, one is greeted by a cascading water feature with an upper level planter. The main living areas on the ground level open to a bamboo garden on the side. The family room on the second level is a double volume space which fronts the main courtyard with a feature tree set in a middle of a water feature. Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellProject gallerySee allShow lessKyeongryunjae / mmArchitectsSelected ProjectsBedford Park House / Mehdi Marzyari ArchitectsSelected Projects Share CopyAbout this officeHYLA ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSingaporePublished on July 16, 2018Cite: “Cascading Courts / HYLA Architects” 16 Jul 2018.
