House at Queen Astrid Gardens


The L-shape planning was conceptualised to frame the panorama on one end of the site. The building is designed as thin blocks to encourage effective natural ventilation especially when it is sited atop a hill. Architectural screens and louvres form a translucent veil to the facades; and together with extensively wide sun-shading roof overhangs, create a visual softness that is well suited to the heavily landscape environment.
