Co-owned by two partners, a plot measuring at 1698sqm is sub-divided equally into two. We came up with prototype design for the scheme. However, each block is subtly differentiated with the interplay of the front balconies and use of pale colours. The schedule of accommodation is the same for each block and composed of 3 terrace units and 4 flats for each block.  The footprint of the terraces was reduced – and distributed across four levels – so as to leave sizeable space that the flats can occupy.

To give distinction to each apartment, the terrace units are “stacked” next to one another with vertical grooves (and juxtaposed balconies) separating them while the flats are stacked horizontally on top of each other across four floors.

In order to compensate for limited green area at the ground level, we designed flat roofs intended for green roofs to serve as sky garden for the residents. The green roofs also come with their environmental benefits such as absorbing rainwater, providing insulation, and helping to lower urban air temperatures and mitigate the heat island effect.

Generous areas of glazing and openings in the living and sleeping areas are used to optimize natural ventilation and lighting. The glazed areas are shaded by terraces on the floor above to prevent direct sunlight reaching the interior spaces.

A typical terrace apartment measures at 317sqm and features a car garage, a steward’s room, laundry, a store and an ante-room on the ground floor.  Accessed via suspended stairs, the living room, dining area and the kitchen occupy first floor. The bedrooms are on the second and third floor. The flats measure at 177Sq.M each with the exception of the ground floor flat at 132Sq.M. Each flat features 3 ensuite bedrooms, a kitchen, living and dining area and a steward’s room. With a flat per floor, all four flats are accessed via common stairways.
