1B Ewart

The L shape plan house was based on the concept of permeability. This was achieved by designing a sequence of open air rooms and gardens that maximized the transparency and encouraged natural ventilation. This is also seen at the entrance where there is an open water courtyard which acts as a cooling element for the building. The use of a split rattan wall along the corridor along the upper floor allows air to pass through as well as acting as a library and a gallery for the inhabitants.
