The design aims to bring natural lighting into a quiet district for a middle-aged couple looking for a sanctuary for their family of four. The original 2 storey terrace house went through a major reconstruction and major structural enhancement to allow for a larger car porch for 2 cars. While we kept the new built low, there was an additional attic where with a large open terrace for gatherings.
It is a down to earth, straight forward design with the notion to bring light into the interior. A skylight amidst the roof structure was created above the open-structure staircase to bring light all the way down through the 2nd and 1st storey.
The interior spaces are modelled to enhance the open-plan spaces while keeping the contemporary neutral design scheme.
