A Singapore home built to harbor elements generally pushed beyond the boundaries of the home, designers at Wallflower Architecutre + Design moved the pool and garden within the house, while retaining the outdoor appeal of the spaces. The bedrooms and living areas were located to the second story, freeing the ground floor from walls and barriers necessary for privacy. The open ground floor flows unrestricted from pool to living room, garden to dining room, never obstructing the visual plane. The exterior walls of the home are thick to resist temperature changes and help funnel air currents through the courtyards. [via contemporist]
