Courtyard House

Inspired by the traditional single storey houses built in the early 19th century ‘Hu Tongs’ of Beijing, the arrangement of the living spaces seeks to re-adapt the configurative typologies of ‘Si He Yuan’ from a modern approach, a four-sided building with an internal open courtyard.

Hidden behind the soaring trees along Upper Harbour Drive, the Courtyard House lies flat over the existing large, sloping site, surrounded by planted terraces and landscaping. This offers interactive connections within the circulation areas of the building and yet also brings a scene of nature into domestic life.
