The Cascading Courts residence is a high-priced current house placed in Singapore. just as its name pointers, the key features of this domestic’s design are the courtyards which might be positioned all around. The idea in the back of this layout become for the courtyards to provide privacy even though the house is located on an exposed plot surrounded by means of other homes. have solved this trouble by placing a succession of courtyards in between the indoors areas of the house.
a series of cascading courts between the residence and the party wall bureaucracy the idea by way of which this semi- detached house is organized. From the outdoor one is scarcely able to see these courtyards due to the screeining and deep shadows. The courtyards are included with a pitcher roof and wooden pergola, which makes them pretty much all weather areas. indeed they are open at the ends and that makes it a very breezy space and residence which is right for our warm tropical weather.
The outdoors elevations have an almost eastern simplicity with the vertical wood monitors and rancid form concrete walls. The wood monitors gives the upper stage bedrooms privacy from the road. At the entrance, one is greeted by using a cascading water characteristic with an higher degree planter. the principle living regions on the floor level open to a bamboo garden at the side. The circle of relatives room on the second degree is a double extent space which fronts the main courtyard with a characteristic tree set in a center of a water characteristic.
