LF HOUSE | Rakta Studio


This semi-detached house features 3 separate gardens and courtyards with different kind of styles. As it located in a quite dense environment which has public footpath running along its side, privacy was a major concern. These courtyards are created  in  the  middle  of  the  house  and also at the back of the house to let light and ventilation in. It makes the house very breezy which is ideal for hot tropical climate.

The timber screen gives the upper level bedrooms privacy from the road also create beautiful shading through the window for interior bedroom as the sun goes down. On the ground floor, one is greeted with timber deck also timber ceiling splitting two courtyards towards main living and dining area, which create a unique spatial building sequence.
