Introvert House

March 16, 2022

The living, dining and kitchen are now one ample open space for maximum spatial and visual connectivity, as well as cross ventilation. The central part of the house is a double-volume semi-indoor courtyard space where the dining, workspace, staircase and linkway are placed—windows of bedrooms open to this courtyard, allowing vertical communication among family members.

The new transparent polycarbonate roof tiles bring in daylight to the courtyard. Trees and planter boxes introduced here (also at the entry courtyard) offer the occupants a constant connection with nature. Ventilation blocks are introduced near the roofline to allow for air movement within this courtyard.
