Open Tropical Home with Interior Courtyard and Wood Features

Open Tropical Home with Interior Courtyard and Wood Features

Located in the Greenbank Park neighborhood of the small city-state of Singapore, this tropical home is a truly serene space that celebrates its natural surroundings along with stunning design. The house was concepted and built by the team at HYLA Architects and measures 520 square meters (5597 square feet). It is marked by a number of unique elements, particularly the central courtyard and the use of beautiful, natural materials particularly wood paneling and slats throughout the house.

One of the most notable features in this modern home is the interior courtyard. We have featured homes with stunning courtyard elements before, but this one is no less impressive. It’s two story height allows it to be enjoyed from almost any space in the home. The architect points out that in addition to the natural light infusion, it “acts as a buffer against noise from a major road a distance away.” Of course, it is also just plainly beautiful with its frangipani tree and small pond.

In any tropical environs it can be a challenge to create a space that allows for plenty of airflow, celebrating the natural surroundings while still maintaining a comfortable temperature for inhabitants. With temperatures in Singapore frequently running towards 100 degrees Fahrenheit (37 Celsius), this is certainly a concern here. To address this, in addition to the open central courtyard, there is plenty of open air space in the home, including an outdoor bath. Large windows slide open and the living room opens out onto a covered verandah. There are plenty of opportunities here to enjoy the outdoors without overheating.

On the second level, bedrooms, a private screening area, and even a home office maintain the clean lines and simple designs of the rest of the home. The space is gorgeous as well as restful, the perfect tropical retreat.
