HOLE-LY HOUSE

This is a reconstruction of an existing 2 storey inter-terrace dwelling house located somewhere in Upper Bukit Timah area. 

The existing 2 storey house prior to the reconstruction was dark and dinghy as most 80s terrace houses.  We decided to play up the idea of injecting daylight into the long and narrow plot by positioning 2 skylights along the 2 party walls in the middle. 

A double volume family area located on the 2nd to 3rd storey is punctuated with natural light that penetrates from the skylight inserted at the attic roof. 

This house is fronted by a major vehicular road. Not wanting to compromise the view and opportunity for natural lighting to the front facing room, a "hole-ly" folding-sliding louvred screen is introduced at the 3rd storey master room.  The design language of "square" holes is continued onto the 2nd storey facade and the carporch roof.
