Evolution of design and architecture is often accelerated by needs of specific landscapes and unique obstacles presented by local weather in different parts of the globe. Designed to withstand frequent typhoons that are all too common in the region has an innovative silhouette and a specially crafted courtyard that act like a ‘chimney’ for the passage of high speed winds.

Blurring the traditional lines between the interior and the outdoors a series of large glass walls and sliding glass doors shape the spacious living area. A modern kitchen sits on one side of the living space while the master bedroom is located at the other end.
The unique design of the roof ensures plenty of natural ventilation and creates a cooling natural breeze during hot days. With the remainder of the house being carefully shielded from harsh weather conditions it is the living area where one feels most connected with the scenery.
Transition between each of these spaces and the outdoor deck is seamless and fluid allowing the homeowners to enjoy an uninhibited and cheerful living environment. Cantilevered verandahs offer ample shade and keep out direct sunlight while vivacious dining table chairs and furniture bring color to the interior.
