The Ficus House
This is a large extended family house for siblings, their families and parent. Responding to the brief and site context, an L-shaped layout allows for necessary privacy between 2 households, and at the same time provides a common courtyard and interconnected social spaces.
Considering the size of the built-in areas, we had to maximise the use of the landscaped areas, and create layers of roof gardens, water bodies, and shading devices to give the illusion of space and nature. The attic also holds commanding views over the neighbourhood and has its own roof gardens and bio-pond to create a relaxing environment.
