Olive House

This house is located on a big flat land at the corner of Astrid Hill Road, surrounded by lot of  mature trees. We use the advantage of the sloping Astrid Hill Road by relocating the new entrance to the lower side of the road which allows light and ventilation into the basement. In order to fulfill a brief from nature-lover client, we orientated a house in u-shape layout. A big koi pond in the center courtyard is used as a focal point of the house. An opened verandah is wrapped by water feature on three sides with large overhang, allows cross ventilation for daily family gathering space. With the project designed in this manner, this allowed the building to make the use of the vast green landscape surrounding the house.
